I think taxpayers and students should sue corporate America for not paying taxes and screwing students for their six figure debt and test test mentality. All while hedge fund and privatizers take in millions. Whose the one taking advantage of students?
I teach in a school with 80% free and reduced lunches. One year my students passed the reading test with 100%. The next year they passed with 65%. I'm a National Board Certified teacher, and have been evaluated as a distinguished teacher. I worry that with all my years of study and experience, I might be deemed ineffective, especially with the poorly written standards that we are facing. The Common Core Standards & their associated standardized tests are absurd! We now have Kindergarteners being required to do homework about alliteration. How in the world can we expect to tie teacher effectiveness to such inappropriate standards?
Don't forget that 40% of a high school teacher's rating is based on how the rest of the school performs on exams in other classes. So a social studies teacher can lose points based on poor chemistry scores. Even better, a phys Ed teacher's rating is tied to scores on math tests, science tests, etc...
Teach and you'll understand ... educate yourself on education and the two-way street that it is. The Union sues because it cares about education as it needs to be. We are the doctors of education. We didn't roll into the position after two interviews. Masters degrees and years of experience bring an enlightenment that the general public isn't going to understand very easily.
I think jeremy been smoking too many peace pipes when he said
"Right now, it's the opponents that are the most vocal, in part because they are being rallied by the racino-backed No More Casinos Coalition."
I nor anyone else there even seem to know that this group even existed. as a matter a fact Jack moore was the only one who even seem to know it even existed. I can safely say I nor others there that I know were not part of this group but there on our own accord to stand up for our town. get your facts straight and quite making stuff up.
"Urbanski stressed Rochester teachers embrace accountability..."
Oh, sure. As long as by "embrace" you mean "shirk".
Maybe it's time for city taxpayers and students to sue the union.
