New York State Democrats are hard at work on the people’s business, making sure that teacher evaluations are never made public:
The state Legislature is likely to pass a last ditch bill that would prevent the release of teacher evaluations, while letting parents see the ratings only of their kids’ instructors. The measure, introduced by Gov. Cuomo just before midnight Monday, could pass before lawmakers head home for the year tomorrow, sources said yesterday.
This makes sense, because limiting accountability is always one of the best ways to improve performance. . .
The bill would allow parents to see the evaluations of their own children’s teachers, but — as the educrats are surely well aware — that’s essentially worthless without the ability to compare with other teachers.
