New York City recently asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to abandon a state law on teacher evaluations, adopted in 2010, saying it does not give the city enough power to fire ineffective teachers. The request comes amid a dispute between the city and the teachers union over the evaluations and a separate lawsuit over evaluations at the state level. Cuomo has said the law has been a failure and pledged to propose a new version if the suit was not settled.
