Syracuse Teachers Association files lawsuit against Department of Education

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – The Syracuse Teachers Association has filed a lawsuit over what they are calling "unfair evaluations."

STA announced the lawsuit on Wednesday, challenging the way the State Education Department set growth scores for students who took last April's standardized tests.

The lawsuit is charging the state, saying they failed to sufficiently take into account the effects of poverty which allegedly resulted in wrongly penalizing teachers who work with the most disadvantaged students.

The Syracuse lawsuit follows a similar suit filed last month on behalf of Rochester teachers.
