Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson

May 11, 2010

To continue our investment in our children and our future we need to improve our score for Race to the Top.
I commend the State Education Department, and the leaders of NYSUT, and UFT for working out a sensible solution on teacher evaluation. New York is now one step closer to winning the race for our children’s future, and the Senate will act as soon as possible in cooperation with the Assembly and Executive to pass this agreement into law.
