“Comparing schools using the same criteria is psychometrically unsound and derived from the pseudo scientific field of statistics dating back to the IQ movement that claimed to use numbers to label people as morons, imbeciles, idiots, or geniuses. Additionally, holding schools and particularly teachers responsible for factors beyond their control is immoral and irresponsible, but is to be expected when the blind leads the sighted.
Most of the people who draft education policy and who make life and death decisions about teachers and schools could not do what they ask teachers and principals to do.
Good parents know that the child they send to school must be respectful, cooperative and hard working in order to drink from the fountain of knowledge. Other parents look to the schools to do in 6 hours a day for 10 months what they have failed to do since birth.
Teachers might be even better than those in the past, but they are presented with an impossible situation, that of having to teach too many children who are resistant, disrespectful, and distracted by all the noise in the world. They are forced to meet over the top certification requirements and mandates set by those who would not survive long in the modern classroom.
(Original post reads: You can add the Charter lady that gives schools a grade to that mix. How dare Miss Jennifer labor schools as failures from her limited experiences and fake concern for the urban poor.)
“The debacle on the Green makes me want to holla. At least our superintendent and mayor did not participate. And a parting word about Steve Perry, get a grip, you act as if you are the alpha and omega of school reform. Trade places with Ms. Breland and if you get results then you can get some respect. Until then, sit down!”
