NYSUT - Senator Flanagan Sign - Posting BThe New York State United Teachers Union this week is ramping up its efforts to pass a bill that would decouple state examinations from teacher and principal evaluations with a mobile billboard.

The billboard, attached to a truck, will be circling on the area of the state Capitol starting Wednesday and Thursday as lawmakers debate the measure, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo has indicated he would sign.

The measure would overhaul a key aspect of a teacher evaluation law that had been approved at Cuomo’s urging over the objections of the union.

The bill decoupling the tests from the evaluations has passed in the Assembly, but remains in a Senate committee.
