News 12 Long Island - has reported, the teacher evaluation system will be based on 100 points, 20 percent of which will based on student exams, another 20 percent on student achievement and 60 percent on other criteria such as independent classroom observation. South Side High School Principal Dr. Carol Burris and the Wheatley School Principal Dr. Sean Feeney say they support a lot of what the governor wants to do to reform education, but both say they are concerned about the degree to which the teacher evaluation system would rely on students' test scores.Cuomo also said while New York spends more money than any other state on public education, it's only 38th in graduation rates.
