Cuomo defends his teacher evaluation plan
Governor Cuomo, as he has done in the past, has traveled around the state post-State of the State/Budget Address to take his message to local communities.
His first stop today was at SUNY Plattsburgh where after his speech he entertained questions from the local media. The topic he discussed at most length was the criticism he's received, particularly from UFT President Michael Mulgrew, on his teacher evaluation proposals. Cuomo said the union's position is they would "rather not be evaluated by anyone ever" but his legislation would help eliminate ineffective teachers and incentivize those who are doing well.
