This year, Florida rolled out its shiny new teacher evaluation program.

In Alachua County, a teacher of the year was rated unsatisfactory.

Officials realized there many errors, and they revised the scoring.

Now 99.5% of the county’s nearly 1,200 teachers are effective or highly effective.

Only one teacher was found to be ineffective!

All of those hundreds of millions of dollars blown away to find one “unsatisfactory” teacher.

If the principals were doing their jobs, that one teacher would have been identified without the grand apparatus and all those millions might have been invested in the arts, playgrounds, reducing class size, social workers and other things that make a real difference.
