Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vetoed a measure he introduced that would have temporarily protected New York teachers from receiving potentially career-ending evaluations because of low Common Core-aligned student test scores.

In his veto message late Monday, Cuomo called the bill unnecessary because recently released 2013-2014 evaluations rated fewer than 1 percent of teachers ineffective. He said those results were "not an accurate assessment" and that he would propose changes to strengthen the statewide evaluation system next year.
