This administrator calls for greater accountability —at the top.
|Yes, there are many of us in administration who stand with our teachers. The shame is that the people who are causing the real damage are never held accountable. We continue to allow elected officials to erode public education while conveniently blaming teachers. They allow public education to be taken over for profit. When will we hold them accountable for their failure of overseeing the public school systems they are charged with protecting? NCLB has failed and RTTT is no better.
Instead of parents blaming teachers, and teachers blaming administrators, everyone should look at the people creating the policies at the top. Let’s evaluate our politicians, governors, and state Ed superintendents by using statewide test scores as their VAM scores for accountability. Their jobs should be tied to test scores just like teachers.
