Teacher Ratings Public, but Not for Cops and Firefighters

28 Feb

This article in City Limits is a year old, but it couldn’t be more relevant now that the NYC public school teacher ratings have been made public. The performance records of cops, correction officers and firefighters cannot be released to the public thanks to the section of a state law that emanates from a 1970s trial in Broome County. The state’s Committee on Open Government (a state agency created by the Freedom of Information Law) has recommended that this law be changed, City Limits reports.
