McLAUGHLIN: ASSEMBLY DEMS HIDE AS STATE BUCKLES ON TEACHER EVALUATIONS

          “The Assembly Republican Conference stood up and debated the poorly-crafted and alienating facets of the education budget bill for six hours. We stood by teachers, parents and students since Common Core and these poorly-devised teacher evaluations were slammed down our schools’ throats. I am glad to see that our efforts, along with the teachers’ union and parents disgruntled with Common Core, have forced the State Education Department to rethink implementing teacher evaluations in November 2015. I hope this is the first step toward abolishing the new evaluations and reforming Common Core so it is no longer detrimental to the parties involved. Where are the Assembly Democrats who supported these evaluations a mere three weeks ago and why are they flip-flopping under heavy public pressure? The Assembly Republicans have stood against these reforms from the beginning, not just when the political tide pushed them a certain way.”

Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,please visit Assemblyman McLaughlin’s Official Website
