NY Lawmakers pass teacher evaluation reform

NY Capitol News

Teachers unions in New York are celebrating a big victory.

The measure allows school districts and teachers to negotiate their own evaluation system that could still include standardized testing.

Opponents of the measure say tests show a clear picture of how a school district is measuring up.
