I greatly appreciate this forum but what is this going to do to convince our government that testing..testing…testing…and more testing is not the answer to a quality education nor is it an effective tool to evaluate teachers.
I am sickened by the nonsensical decision of our government to “punish” the children, teachers,schools, families and communities of Washington state and revert back to the failed punitive measures of NCLB. The government has admitted that NCLB is a FAILED POLICY. It is also known that evaluating teachers on Test Scores doesn’t help anyone! Teaching and learning is a complex process. Washington state gets that. The government should be learning from us not “punishing” us. Dystopian, sad and Truly unbelievable!
