A group of public school principals is asking Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio to make big changes to the city's educational policies.
140 principals have sent an open letter to de Blasio in which they blast Mayor Michael Bloomberg's educational reforms and call for a complete overhaul of the new teacher and principal evaluations.
The principals also want the use of test scores reduced to the minimum allowed by the federal government.
And they want the city to stop using letter grades for schools -- something de Blasio supported during his run for mayor.
But the two sides aren't on the same page with every proposed reform.
The principals want de Blasio to hand over his majority control of the Panel for Educational Policy to community members, which the mayor-elect opposes.
