Education Department will allow states to delay imposing sanctions on teachers and principals

June 19, 2013
Education Secretary Arne Duncan says some schools need more time to incorporate tougher education standards.

Acknowledging that teachers and principals may need more time to understand and incorporate new education standards, the U.S. Department of Education will allow states up to one additional year before using their new evaluation systems to impose personnel consequences. Education Secretary Arne Duncan says that states that seek and are granted this flexibility "will have the authority to delay any personnel consequences for teachers and principals tied to the new assessments for up to one year until 2016-17."
