Grading teachers: What works, what hurts?


Grading teachers: What works, what hurts?

KPCC wants to hear from teachers and others involved in public schools -- You know what bugs you about evaluations, teaching to the test and the paperwork that consumes your non-teaching time, but how would you fix the system?

Share your experiences and ideas. Your responses will help shape an episode of AirTalk with Larry Mantle as he and several experts explore how to grade public school teachers the evening of Thursday, Nov. 11 (RSVP info available here soon.)

Is the bar we use to judge teachers too high or low? If we agree that every child deserves a great teacher, what are we willing to do to make that a reality? What are we willing to spend?
