Haha MadHatter is on record thinking that we need to have elected officials in charge of determining effectiveness of educators
We managed to build the greatest education system in the world without this crap. I'd much rather have my kids learn in school instead of studying for a standardized test. I'd rather trust teachers and dedicated school administrators than a government panel. I'd rather spend our tax dollars training, retaining and rewarding good teachers instead of building more F-35s than we need.
But sure Mad. no standardized testing must mean we have no need for education, keep rollin with your unique perspective.
As usual CWG...I ask a simple question. You don't answer it and go on another ignorant diatribe.
Without some standardized testing, how do you measure the effectiveness of a school's and teacher's teaching?
You cannot just look at a student's grades at a school. Schools can have very different quality standards.
I understand the issues with having raises, funding, etc tied to just a standardized test. You get the corruption that we see in Atlanta. The standardized test scores should not be the only evaluating factor. But, it should be part of the process.
My question to YOU is what do you think would be a better system. If you are too stupid to answer it intelligently (which is pretty evident by your continuous posts that say nothing), we would just prefer that you sit over in the corner and just shut the fug up.
