Buffalo schools parent group supports Gov. Cuomo's reform agenda decreases aid to district

"The governor in January announced plans to increase school aid 4 percent overall in 2012-13 — but said districts that do not implement the new evaluations by January 2013 would lose their increase in aid. Twenty percent of a teacher’s evaluation will be tied to student growth on state tests, and another 20 percent will be tied to local measures of student achievement," wrote Buffalo News Blogger Mary Pasciak, attending the meeting of the District Parent Coordinating Council.

The DPCC passed a resolution at its meeting on Tuesday supporting Gov.Cuomo's reform agenda that will decrease state school funds to the district unless it implements teacher and principal evaluation system by January 2013.

Cuomo hopes to force the end of the successful lawsuit pending in state court  Commissioner John B.King initiated against NYSU Teacher's union.

Why DPCC supports decreasing the state aid to Buffalo schools has many in  the community troubled.
