WOODBURY - A new poll shows that the proposed reforms for the state's teacher evaluation system are getting good grades from New Yorkers. A few weeks ago, the state's Education Department and school union officials compromised on the evaluation system. Under the deal, 60 percent of a teacher's evaluation would be based on traditional observation; the other 40 percent would depend on how their students perform.A new Sienna poll shows that half of New Yorkers think the system will improve public education in the state. Just 3 percent of New Yorkers polled think it would hurt public education.The compromise will also help secure hundreds of millions of dollars in federal education funds. Local school districts still must customize the plan to fit their own needs. Districts that can complete this within a year will qualify for additional state aid, education officials say.Cuomo: NY, teachers' union agree on new evaluation planDeadline looms for teachers, state to agree on new evaluationsCuomo to schools: New teacher evaluations or no more aid
