I published a post with a photo of a teacher who was named Teacher of the Year by her colleagues but found “unsatisfactory” or “ineffective” by the value-added methods of her state. I knew her name–Mrs. Cook–but nothing more.

Here is the story. She teaches first grade in Florida. Her school got a low grade, so every teacher lost points. Her VAM rating was based on students she never taught,

She is a victim of a nutty system imposed by Jeb Bush, Rick Scott and ALEC.
