“The reform community will remain vigilant”

That’s what Glen Weiner, the acting executive director of StudentsFirstNY, vowed in a press release about New York City’s new teacher and principal evaluation plans:

“From including student surveys; to appropriately empowering principals to effectively mange their schools; to keeping bureaucratic hurdles to a minimum, the evaluation system put forth by John King ensures that New York City continues down the path toward ensuring a quality teacher is at the front of every classroom — making New York’s 1.1 million school kids the ultimate victors of this process.

The reform community will remain vigilant through the implementation of this system to make sure that finally, after years of delay, teachers will be properly evaluated, supported and held accountable.“
