New York State United Teachers President Karen E. Magee released the following statement today in response to a lawsuit challenging due process rights for New York’s teachers:

“This is a politically motivated attack against every dedicated teacher in New York state. We are highly confident the courts will reject this attack as entirely without merit. We welcome the opportunity to expose the many lies and misrepresentations about tenure laws and establish, once and for all, the plain truth: Tenure is an absolutely necessary safeguard for teachers, for students and for quality public schools.

“Tenure means teachers can speak freely and strongly on matters of public concern.

2015 New York State Grades 3–8 ELA And Mathematics Assessments

 

The East Meadow Teachers Association (EMTA) shares the concerns that parents across New York have regarding over-testing resulting from the state’s botched implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS).  These concerns include: stress on students, appropriateness of tests, erosion of learning time, and lack of state transparency on test content.

 

The EMTA recognizes that the parental decision to have a child sit for or “opt out” of the assessments is based on varied and deeply personal reasoning.  With this in mind, the EMTA fully supports parents’ right to choose what is best for their children regarding the upcoming New York State Assessments.
