Lawmakers have deal for new teacher evaluations
ALBANY (WABC) -- The three most powerful politicians in New York have a deal on the table for a new teacher evaluation law.
Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senate Majority leader Dean Skelos and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver call the bill a national model for teacher evaluation.
They say it delivers on a commitment to establish a new evaluation system in return for $700 million from the federal Race to the Top program.
