Connecticut Teacher Unions Appeal Evaluation Decision
March 30, 2017|Uncategorized
A Connecticut Superior Court judge has upheld a Freedom of Information Commission ruling allowing date from teacher evaluations to be made public and diminish teacher union power to keep poor performing teachers on just because they pay dues. Barry Lytton has the story in the newstimes.com.
An effort by Connecticut’s largest teachers’ union to keep data about teacher evaluation private suffered another setback last week when a court referee ruled that the information is public.
In an 11-page decision, New Britain Superior Court Referee Henry Cohn upheld a Freedom of Information Commission ruling that the information is public as long as it remains in aggregate form.
