The United Federation of Teachers says discussions are continuing with City officials over a teacher evaluation system that would need to be implemented in order for millions in grants to be awarded to NYC.
Lisa Fleischer, Wall Street Journal Education Reporter; and Susan Keyock, a special education teacher in the Bronx weighed in on the evaluations.
The city stands to lose $450 million.
Each of the state's nearly 700 school districts was told to submit a plan for how to evaluate teachers by Jan. 17.
"We'll have to wait and see if a deal can be reached today," said Fleischer.
"I am also hopeful there will be a deal tonight. Teachers have shown that they want a fair and meaningful teacher evaluation system. The feedback that we're given can really make a difference in student learning," said Keyock.
