Gov. Andrew Cuomo is opposed to a broad moratorium on the state’s teacher evaluation law, suggesting in a public radio interview he favored a more surgical “adjustment” to the 2013 measure.

“The question is: how do you do it, and without a moratorium?” Cuomo said on The Capitol Pressroom on Thursday. “Because the moratorium is overkill.”

The Democratic-led Assembly previously approved a two-year moratorium bill that would delay the use of teacher evaluations.

But Cuomo, who negotiated the law with teachers unions and the state Education Department, pointed to the evaluations only taking into consideration 20 percent of Common Core related-tests.

“I’m not in favor of a moratorium,” Cuomo said. “Would you be in favor of an adjustment for the possibility that the test scores are not correct? Yes, because that’s what we said—it would be illogical to say I see the inaccuracy for students and the potential harm but not for teachers. So can you find a way to do that? That’s what we’re working through on that issue.”

Cuomo in April said he wanted to make changes to the law in order to accommodate delays made to the implementation of the Common Core standards.

A broader moratorium is being pushed by the statewide teachers union, which began on Wednesday a $200,000 online campaign for the effort.

Senate Education Committee Chairman John Flanagan said earlier in the week he expected some sort of an agreement on changes to the teacher evaluation law by the end of the session.
