Peter Greene attended the Network for Public Education's third annual conference in Raleigh, where NPE introduced a new framework for teacher evaluation. In this post, he describes an approach to teacher evaluation based on what teachers (teachers!) believe will work best in identifying teachers' strengths and needs.Here are the recommendations, in Peter's words. Take his advice and that of Diane Ravitch , and read the report: which begins with these 3:1) Stop using student test scores for teacher evaluation. Absolutely. 2) Top-down collaboration is an oxymoron. Don't tie mandated and micromanaged teacher collaboration to evaluation.3) The observation process should focus on reflection and dialogue as tools for improvement.
