let us teach let them learn


ABOUT THE 'LET US TEACH' CAMPAIGN. The NYS Assembly has passed A.10475, which would return control over teacher evaluations to local school districts and teachers. Between the Senate and the Assembly, this bill has more than 120 sponsors. That shows overwhelming support for the bill, which would go a long way toward creating a fairer and more effective evaluation system. It is now the Senate's turn to pass the bill. We must urge Majority Leader Flanagan to bring the bill to the floor. Use the Member Action Center to FAX or CALL. Urge your state Senator to lift the dark cloud that is New York’s current APPR system. Let us teach and let them learn.
