StudentsFirstNY Responds to Chancellor Walcott's Speech

Chancellor Walcott is putting the interests of children first by ensuring that no student is taught by an ineffective teacher two years in a row.

StudentsFirstNY State Director Micah Lasher issued the following statement today in response to Chancellor Dennis Walcott's speech this morning:

"Chancellor Walcott is putting the interests of children first by ensuring that no student is taught by an ineffective teacher two years in a row. As lawmakers engage in a classic Albany debate focused on adults and what data can and can't be released to whom, they should make what the Chancellor has done for City schoolchildren the law for the entire state."
