Evaluating Teachers - Another Post On The National Discussion

From Downloads

American RadioWorks has an hour posting of a recent radio program on Testing Teachers. It is a long program (60 minutes) and you might need to download a program such as RealPlayer to listen, but it has some very interesting arguments. You can click here to read the transcript.

The LA Times has made this a national debate by publishing a list of good/bad teachers in an area around LA. Educators seem to be upset because the current evaluation system  needs improvement and the discussion has  moved outside the Education network. It is time for teachers to step up and start working to improve/replace the current system of evaluation instead of saying it can't be done.
