The leader of the New York State Board of Regents recently directed State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia and the State Education Department to return with a proposal to extend the moratorium that would de-link student assessments from teacher evaluations for one year. This would provide a one year extension for the 2019-2020 school year. WBFO's senior reporter Eileen Buckley spoke with State Regent Catherine Collins about involving teachers in creating better teacher evaluations.
