State may impose teacher evaluation system if UFT and city cannot reach agreement

Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Jan. 30 that if the city won’t get to a teacher evaluation agreement with the UFT by a set date, he will direct the State Education Department to set up a binding arbitration process that will get the two sides to an agreement.

UFT President Michael Mulgrew responded with the following statement:

I welcome Governor Cuomo’s involvement, and while we would prefer a negotiated settlement, it’s good to know that should the talks fail again, people who actually understand education will be part of the decision-making process. Parents need to know that, thanks to the governor and the legislative leaders, there will be no further risk of the loss of state money for our schools.
