Sorry, teachers, accountability is coming.
Teacher accountability - - based on student test scores - - is coming. And that is good. We now have software to measure how far a given teacher can take her or his class in a given year. And we can compare that to what another teacher can do in a given year for the same students, and certainly students with the same demographic profile.
The era of subjective teacher evaluations based on what other teachers think, is gone. Those of us in business get evaluated based on outcomes. As a taxpayer, business person, and parent - - it's time for teachers to be held accountable as well.
