Condemning the outrageous acts of senseless violence.

I join President Obama in condemning the outrageous acts of senseless violence carried out by a few misguided individuals. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and the others who lost their lives in the service of our country. As we continue to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001, it is important that the rest of the world know that America is united, acts against our people will not be tolerated, and we will stand up for human rights throughout the world.

Statement From Senator Malcolm A. Smith, RE: Teacher Evaluations

Statement From Senator Malcolm A. Smith RE: Teacher Evaluations I have attached the Teacher Evaluation Bill for your review which provides for public disclosure of the final quality ratings composite and effectiveness scores of teachers and building principals. This bill affords complete transparency to parents and allows for them to get information by phone or  in person from their child’s  principal.  “ It was imperative that we get this matter on the floor before the close of session. It will afford parents more transparency with regard to the quality of educators in their children’s classrooms, while protecting the precious rights to privacy that all citizens deserve.
