Skeptical unions pose challenge to districts’ Race to the Top is by John Fensterwald at Ed Source and highlights our local union’s leadership here in California rejecting participation in the District Race To The Top applications.

John’s article also mentions that both our Superintendent, Jonathan Raymond, and our local union will be using the report developed the California State Educator Excellence Task Force as the basis for future discussions on developing a teacher evaluation system.

Along with other educators, I served both on our local’s committee that developed the Race To The Top recommendation and on the state Educator Excellence task force.
