ALBANY -- Richard Iannuzzi, president of NYSUT, said in a hallway interview at 11am: “I think we’re very, very close. I think by noon it will be done.’’
The NYSUT leader declined to provide details, but said the final deal will contain more “rigor’’ in the evaluation standards than a 2010 law that first set the teacher evaluation standards.
“The highlights will be everybody will say New York’s students are better off and New York’s teachers are better off,’’ Iannuzzi said.
He said the talks are down to “words.’’
“And I don’t expect there to be any differences in those last couple of words,’’ he said.
