At 10 a.m., UFT President Michael Mulgrew will be joined by Sen. Adriano Espaillat, Assemblymen Karim Camara, Ron Kim, and other legislators to announce the introduction a bill that would mandate the use of multiple academic measures rather than the current single multiple-choice test, Stuyvesant High School, 345 Chambers St., Manhattan.
There are no other details about the announcement, but I assume they're taking on the single multiple choice test that's used as the barometer for who gets into the elite schools and who doesn't.
My guess is, they'll argue getting into those schools should not be based on just one test score.
Alas, the last time I heard Mulgrew talk about "multiple measures" for evaluation, we got local AND state test measures, along with 22 competencies of the Danielson rubric.
So anytime I hear Mulgrew say the phrase "multiple measures," I think "I wonder what crap he'll push for now?"
