Cuomo: I may not get teacher eval disclosure deal
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he may not reach agreement with lawmakers on his bill to keep teacher evaluations from the public after all.
Cuomo has been negotiating privately with legislative leaders to limit the disclosure of broad, single-phrase ratings. A court has said the evaluations should be public, but Cuomo and teachers' unions have tried to limit their release to parents of children in a teacher's class.
The bill would also prevent parents from seeing the evaluations of teachers they might want to avoid in future years.
Cuomo tells WOR Radio the talks might not result in a deal by midnight Monday. That would be needed to get a bill to the floor in time for a vote by the end of the session on Thursday.
