If you are dissatisfied with
APPR and need to let your voice be heard – let’s do it.
We need to flood the New York State Commissioner’s office
with thousands of letters expressing our disapproval.
We need to spread the word of a letter writing campaign.
Every person writes just one letter! Then we all mail
it on the same day – December 10, 2012.
The address :
Dr. John B. King, Jr.
New York State Education Department
89 Washington Avenue
Albany, New York 12234
Spread the word to other teachers,
school districts, parents, grandparents, friends, students,
etc. The more the merrier. Include articles on poverty,
parental involvement, and other issues that impact students.
Describe teachers who make an impact, but are/will possibly
be labeled “ineffective”.
Don’t just write complaints, let’s also offer real suggestions
and advice on how to get an evaluation system right!
It’s that simple. If we put all our complaints and suggestions
down on paper, influence others to do the same, then we
can’t be ignored.
