Governor Cuomo has included as part of his education-reform agenda provisions that would make 50 percent of a Teacher's performance evaluation dependent on student test scores and allow the state to take over schools that have failed to meet standards over a period of several years. Mayor de Blasio and the United Federation of Teachers have opposed these changes, saying they would harm the education process by compelling instructors to teach to the test and that the Mayor's plan to fortify struggling schools is preferable to a state takeover. The Governor argues that the current evaluations aren't meaningful because just a tiny percentage of Teachers have been rated ineffective despite the sizable number of failing schools, and that it's a disservice to students and parents to force them to remain in those schools in hope of them being transformed.
