A new teacher evaluation system at 20 city public schools finds nearly one in five teachers to be "ineffective."
Results of the pilot assessment program were first reported in Crain's New York.
The new evaluation method is intended to replace the current ratings that give assessments of either "satisfactory" or "unsatisfactory."
Nearly all teachers pass the current process, but a new evaluation must be implemented at every school by 2014.
A deputy chancellor at the Department of Education told Crain's that if these pilot numbers were applied systemwide, the city would have the highest percentage of unsatisfactory teachers in the nation.
A spokesman for the teachers' union said the results have not been shared with them yet.
DOE officials told NY1 the numbers are preliminary.
