No area of government needs reform more than our education system. New York State spends more than any other state per pupil, yet ranks only 38th in graduation rates. Why aren’t New Yorkers getting what they’re paying for Our system has suffered because Albany has spent more time worrying about the business of education — contracts, salaries, and benefits — than it has worrying about the children. Education should be about the STUDENTS. We need to have a system in Albany that focuses on improving student performance and school accountability. Adopting a real teacher evaluation system is the key to this effort. In 2010, our state was awarded a $700 million grant from the federal government that required teacher evaluations, but the state has failed to produce the system. Currently there is a lawsuit between the teachers unions and the State Education Department that is blocking the evaluations from moving forward. If we do not act, we are at risk of losing $700 million in federal funding.
