Okay, first we learn that charter school teachers will NOT be assessed using the new statewide teacher evaluation system that makes test scores THE determining factor in a teacher's evaluation.
Now we learn that the NYCDOE, which can't wait to release the Teacher Data Reports for 12,500 NYC ELA and math teachers from 2008-2010, will NOT release the Teacher Data Reports for teachers in charter schools.
Two more examples of the rampant double standards the charter school industry enjoys from the political, education and media establishment in this country.
Teachers MUST be held accountable for student test scores - except for charter school teachers, who do not have to be evaluated using this measure.
Teacher have no right to privacy regarding their Teacher Data Reports, even though the NYCDOE acknowledges they are rife with error - except for charter school teachers, who do have that right.
