Most teachers, students, and parents agree that the city's new teacher evaluation system is a misguided attempt to distract New Yorkers from the real challenges faced by our schools and students.  But what's a teacher to do?

Take Action - Share the video and sign the petition for a moratorium on the new evaluations system
