Usually, I only publish a once-weekly “round-up” of good posts and articles on education policy issues. However, I’m a bit behind, so I’m catching-up with this “special edition”:
Kill tenure, cure schools? was published in the Los Angeles Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On California Court Case Attacking Teacher’s Rights.
Competing Views of Teacher Tenure Are on Display in California Case is from The New York Times. I’m adding it to the same list.
Teachers asked to ‘inspect’ Ofsted is from TES Connect.
More Research Needed on Proper Use of Common-Core Tests, Report Says is from Education Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Next Generation” Of State Testing.
Kamenetz & Gallup Nail the Key to School Improvement by John Thompson is a good commentary on a recent Gallup Poll and on a Hechinger Report post analyzing the poll. I’m adding both to The Best Posts & Articles About The Importance Of Teacher (& Student) Working Conditions.
Pay-for-Performance for CEOs and Teachers is by Larry Cuban. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning Why Teacher Merit Pay Is A Bad Idea.
Fresno teachers union opposes extension of No Child Left Behind waiver is from The Fresno Bee. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On The NCLB Waiver Given To Eight California School Districts (Including Ours).
Moving "effective" #teachers around will not create equity. #Teaching effectiveness also affected by working conditions, context.
