Teacher Evaluations 0
Noz has a question about them:
but then once the evaluation system is up and running it finds that 97-98% of the teachers perform at or above effective levels. education reform people seem to think this means that teachers weren’t evaluated properly. but isn’t it just as likely that teachers aren’t as big of a problem as policy-makers has assumed them to be? and if policy-makers won’t budge from the “bad teacher” hypothesis no matter what new information they get, why should anyone listen to them?
Holy foregone conclusions! No! Batman! Facts delendi est!
Flawed and perverse policies must be defended against facts at all costs.
