NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Despite a midnight Friday deadline, no deal was reached between New York City and the teacher’s union on a teacher evaluation plan.
Both sides have stopped talking after a breakdown in negotiations over a way to evaluate the city’s 75,000 teachers, the city is at risk of losing up to $450 million in state aid and grants, CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he will not extend the midnight deadline.
“Since we established one of the strongest teacher evaluation models in the nation last year, 98 percent of school districts have successfully implemented them,” Cuomo said in a statement. “The remaining districts and their unions have until midnight tonight to do the same or they will forfeit the increase in education aid they have been counting on and both parties will have failed the children they serve.”
