New NY Education Reform Commission Releases its final report

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s New NY Education Reform Commission released its final report. The report includes recommendations to expand full-day pre-kindergarten, upgrade classroom technology and rewarding top teachers. CEE executive director Michael Rebell, who was a member of the commission, wrote an important supplemental statement, criticizing the report’s failure “to deal at all with such major issues as funding, special education, the lack of appropriate supports for English language learners, as well as ignoring major current controversies such as implementation of the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR), and common core systems.”
