Tripod Surveys – Don’t Count, Won’t Count – but Fariña Won’t Let Go

In the new new evaluation law, there are no student surveys of teachers. But there were in the old new law, which is why the DoE prepared “tripod” surveys and sent them into the high schools. This year was supposed to be a pilot that doesn’t count. There is no “next year” because of the change in law. And the surveys take half an hour of class time – while students are preparing for Regents exams (which count in MOSLs)

New Action brought this issue to the UFT leadership, who were rebuffed when they asked to pull the surveys. What is Fariña thinking?
