More than 350 Long Island school principals oppose state approach to evaluations

School principals on Long Island are banding together to say what a lot of local administrators have already: the teacher and principal evaluation system is too much, too fast.

The principals drafted and signed a later critiquing how the state could spend millions on changes that don’t have a foundation in research. In fact, 10 education researchers expressed concerns to the state regarding the regulations earlier this year.

“As building principals, we applaud efforts aimed towards excellence for all of our students. We cannot, however, stand by while untested practices are put in place without any meaningful discussion or proven research,” according to the Long Island Principals website.

The state education commissioner John King Jr. told Newsday that the principals have some valid concerns that the state is addressing in the regulations.
