Re: How competent are public school principals at improving student achievement through teacher evaluation?

Posted By: Joe Ferrara on January 7, 2009

Your first focus question regarding evaluation is one of the structural pieces that prevents true assessment of teacher effectiveness. The idea that evaluations can even be separated into 3 categories is the intended structure. There is a social curtain on a campus that prevents true evaluation. Very few teachers feel that evaluations are used effectively or even as a tool for professional growth.
