Feb 22, 2013 Comments Off on Teachers Union: Don’t Make Evaluations Public Chuck Biscuits
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: A Florida teachers union has filed a motion in court to prevent a newspaper from obtaining teacher evaluation records.
The Florida Times-Union sought the documents through a public records request, but hit a snag in court when the state decided it would seek the opinion of the attorney general’s office regarding whether it was required to turn over the documents. The Florida Education Association then joined with the state to oppose the newspaper.
According to the teachers union, the state is not required to release information on teacher evaluations.
