Great Neck, NY Teacher Sheri Lederman Files Lawsuit over Evaluation

Sheri Lederman

A Long Island teacher has filed a lawsuit against the state Education Department, claiming New Yorks’ teacher evaluation system is statistically flawed.

Sheri Lederman filed the suit after being rated “ineffective” on the portion of her rating tied to students’ test performance — a year after she got a “highly effective” score.

Lederman is a fourth-grade teacher in the Great Neck elementary schools. She has a doctorate in education.

According to Newsday, her lawsuit says the evaluation system lacks a proper appeals process.

The teacher evaluation is based in part on a formula that includes students’ test performance.

A spokesman for the Education Department says it doesn’t comment on litigation.
