Carol Burris on grants for charters to share their "successful" practices



Carol Burris has been the principal of South Side High School in Rockville Centre, N.Y., for 12 years. South Side is ranked as one of the top high schools in the country by Newsweek every year, and in 2010, she was named the NYS Outstanding Educator by the School Administrators Association of New York.  She is one of the co-authors of the principals’ letter against evaluating teachers by test scores, which was signed by more than one third of all New York State principals, and more recently, a petition asking Governor Cuomo to end highstakes testing, which has received over 9500 signatures.  She has written many opeds in the Washington Post Answer Sheet, including Why “school reform” is a misnomer.
Today she received an email from the NY State Education Department
