“There’s a real contrast between how our students are performing and how their teachers and principals are evaluated,” Tisch said in a statement. “The ratings from districts aren’t differentiating performance. We look forward to working with the Governor, Legislature, NYSUT, and other education stakeholders to strengthen the evaluation law in the coming legislative session.”
The education department report includes recommendations for how to improve the system. For example, if more than 75 percent of teachers or principals are rated “highly effective” or fewer than 5 percent are rated “ineffective” on the component of the evaluation system that is based on observations, the lead evaluators in that district should be retrained and an independent audit might be appropriate, the department recommended.

If they will "strengthen" evaluations next year by ensuring that school leaders rate at least 5% of teachers in every district "ineffective," that translates to ensuring that school administrators rate at least 5% of teachers "ineffective" in every building.
In short, they've come up with an arbitrary number - 5% - and are saying this is the benchmark we want to see for "ineffective" ratings handed out.
Just as NYSED and the Regents rigged the Common Core tests for 70% failing, they're now going to rig the APPR teacher evaluation system so that at least 5% of teachers are deemed "ineffective" every year and slated for firing.

Can you survive the next round?

This is very true. It's easily attributable to parenting, hunger, poverty, and a number of other factors that are way beyond the control of a teacher. This is all about destroying the teacher profession and public education. Does anyone really believe these people care about kids? Take all this reformy bs money and put it into lowering class sizes. That would be the single most effective thing they can do.
They won;t do that because there's no money in it for their criminal friends on Wall Street, Silicon Valley and in the edu-sectors.Delete
I would submit, based on the harm that Cuomo and Tisch have done, and continue to do, to public education in New York and to all of the students that have been sold out for profit, that these two should not only be declared "ineffective", but they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for the crimes they continue to perpetrate against our children and great state.ReplyDelete
I agree - King too. Child abusers running the ed system in this state.Delete
New Yorkers should create two new systems for the likes of Cuomo and Tisch...1) No Corrupt Politician Left Behind, to be followed by 2) Race to the Prison Cell....and to further their educational endeavors, they can have their cells adorned with Common Core worksheets, compliments of Pearson....That truly would be a day for all New Yorkers to celebrate.ReplyDelete
Cuomo belongs in prison, that's for sure. But I'm getting more and more cynical about that happening.Delete
NYSED? Oh I thought NYSUT said that. Now that I think of it, NYSUT would have offered a higher number...ReplyDelete
This idea of eliminating the bottom 5-10% echoes of Bill Gates and "stack ranking" employees. Microsoft was hurt seriously by this idea as collaboration, creativity & risk taking by employees suffered. Here is a good read about companies that used stack ranking.ReplyDelete
Notice the terminology in this article, strikingly similar to the corporate-edu speak of the deformers who want to run public schools like a business even if those policies fail businesses.
