There’s a big article in The Atlantic this week that has been getting a fair amount of attention. It’s titled Why Kids Should Grade Teachers (it includes a relatively lengthy description of the process in a kindergarten classroom).
I’ve written a whole lot on this topic (see The Best Posts On Students Evaluating Classes (And Teachers) ).
There are few teachers who have advocated more for the use of student evaluations than me — but NOT for use in formal teacher evaluations.
I’ve written about my objections to this hijacking of a great tool by “school reformers” at I’ve Got A Bad Feeling About This: “Next Up in Teacher Evaluations: Student Surveys.”
Feedback is welcome….
