Friday, May 9, 2008 - Student Tests - and Teacher Grades

...public education lives in an upside-down universe where student outcomes are not allowed to be connected to teaching.
Denying any connection between teaching and learning is a dangerous course for teacher unions to chart. It contradicts what experience teaches us. And it flies in the face of common sense. If unions are telling us that there's no connection between teaching and learning, why should we then support teachers, or public education?
