Leonie Haimson: The New York Teacher Evaluation Mess

Diane Ravitch's blog

Leonie Haimson weighs in on the mess created by Arne Duncan’s Race to the Top demand for a state teacher evaluation system based to a significant degree on test scores.

Leonie says that if the Legislature is unwilling to repeal the law (as I urge), it should hold public hearings.

No way to put lipstick on this pig.

Evaluating teachers by test scores is unsound. There is no evidence for it. It has failed and failed and failed.

It should be repealed. The legislature doesn’t know how to evaluate teachers. Let each district devise its own plans.
