Yeah, I'd say that's more than a little likely. Let's set aside the fact that Cuomo apparently doesn't want to look at Albany's own culpability in failing to serve New York's students.
The real question is whether this commission - which undoubtedly will come up with recommendations for evaluating educators - will include any actual, working teachers. Or will we once again be locked out of the process by people who don't know the first thing about what we do?
Governor Cuomo, you have a choice here, and you have two role models for your choice:
Governor Goofus of New Jersey only had ONE working teacher on his task force. Worse, he included people who had no training, experience, knowledge, or even a stake in teacher evaluation systems design.
Governor Gallant of California, however, took advantage of a scandal within the Commission on Teacher Credentialing to clean house and appoint actual teachers. Who do you think is going to get better buy-in from the teachers of his state?
Governor Cuomo, would you rather be known as Governor Goofus or Gallant?
