Boston teacher evaluations to be released

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) -- The secretary of state's office has ordered the Boston public schools to release teacher performance ratings by school after ruling they were wrongfully withheld.

The Boston Globe originally sought the teacher ratings in June and also requested aggregate ratings of all principals and other administrators. The request did not seek data on individual teachers, but sought only the number and percentage of teachers at each school who rank in each performance category.

The school department argued that the documents were exempt from the state's public records law because their release would risk identifying individual teachers.

The school department said it would comply with Friday's ruling.

The teacher's union objects to the release, but the union president did not whether the ruling would be challenged in court.
