The clock is ticking for New York City and the union representing 75,000 public school teachers to agree on a system for evaluating teachers or risk losing $450 million in state aid and grants.
 

With a Thursday deadline looming, negotiations on the evaluation plan resumed last week for the first time since mid-December.  
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Friday on his radio program that he thinks things "are going to work out."
 
But the United Federation of Teachers told members that if no agreement can be reached, the mayor "will once again try to blame teachers."
 
A war of words on over how to evaluate New York City teachers erupted earlier this month.
 
New York City is home to the nation's largest public school system, with 1.1 million pupils.
