The results of this year's composite test scores for teachers and principals are encouraging.  We have always maintained that New York has some of the most dedicated and talented teachers in the nation.

New York State is still in the early stages of implementing the Common Core Learning Standards and the new Annual Professional Performance Review system.  We must not lose sight of our end goal, which is to improve student performance.

As educators and school boards become more familiar with these reforms, we believe the reforms will ultimately lead to better teaching and learning in New York schools. Now is not the time to abandon our pursuit of higher standards.
