Dems, GOP agree: Separating teacher evaluations & Common Core is not political

By Christine Stuart

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said his decision to give school districts the option to delay using a new teacher evaluation method with a new set of standards is a response to the complaints he’s been hearing from educators.

The governor, who has not said whether he is running for re-election, said it’s an issue he’s been working on for the past seven months.

    They rushed to do this with very little preparation .No training for administrators or teacher.Not well thought our.

    Gov Malloy, clearly motivated by his re-election concerns, once again is pandering to the teachers unions who support he desperately needs. Teacher unions continue to fight tooth and nail to delay any measure that tests competency. After all they already have among the top salaries in the nation. How dare anyone suggest they all are not individually competent. When students fail why blame the teacher ? The fault “must be in the stars”. Teachers can do no wrong. Their high salaries reflect our appreciation for outstanding service. Sure.
