“The de Blasio administration announced a deal on Wednesday that would change how teachers and principals are evaluated, relying more on the work students do every day in the classroom.
While nearly all of New York City teachers receive the highest marks on their evaluations, their students do not do nearly as well. Seventy percent of city students graduate from high school, and fewer than half of those are ready for college, according to city measurements. The changes announced Wednesday seemed unlikely to significantly change that discrepancy.”
