In my post on whether Pennsylvania is the worst state, my original language referred to “teacher evacuation,” instead of “teacher evaluation.”
I fixed my typo, but as I did, I realized that this was a meaningful slip.
Is “teacher evaluation” in fact “teacher evacuation”?
I keep hearing stories of excellent teachers who are retiring early because they don’t want to teach to lousy tests.
So, maybe I should have left the typo as accurate.
Maybe “teacher evaluation” is indeed “teacher evacuation.”
It makes room for the new college graduates who want to try teaching for a year or two, then find their “real” job.
