A Quality Teacher in Every Classroom: An Evaluation System that Works for California has just been released by Accomplished California Teachers (ACT).

I may be a little biased since I’m a member of ACT (though I didn’t participate in writing this report), but this is the best resource I’ve seen on teacher evaluation and most of the points it makes are applicable everywhere — not just in California.

It’s a must-read and, while you’re at it, I’d encourage you to subscribe to InterACT, the group’s blog.

Many people participate in ACT, but special kudos need to go to David B. Cohen for his leadership.
