WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- A regional group of superintendents released a study on Oct. 3, that slams the current state teacher evaluation system and calls for a new system to be put into place, according to LoHud.com.

The report claims that districts often mark up or inflate classroom observation scores to prevent teachers from getting bad overall evaluations, LoHud.com reported.

The current evaluation system grades teachers on 60 percent classroom observation, 20 percent student progression on testing and 20 percent on locally determined assessments.
