The Teacher Effectiveness Debate

The Advancing the Teaching Profession blog has an interesting post on recent studies trying to determine teacher effectiveness. You can access the blog by clicking here. A brief summary:

  •  Teachers have greater value-added gains when they are in schools with others who generate high value-added gains.
  • Teachers have greater value-added gains when they teach the same subjects and grade levels consistently—especially in their first 5 years of teaching. 
  • Teachers who are effective in one school will not necessarily be effective in another
