A must read: Mass hysteria in New York City after test scores are released

I cannot believe that the ed reform movement has come down to this, releasing teacher evaluations based on test scores and then the New York Post selecting one teacher as the worst teacher in NYC and posting her photo and information on the cover of their rag. Is this what education is supposed to be about?

There is a post in Living Beyond the Gates that is a must read and describes what led up to this unfathomable situation and what the fallout is now and will continue to be. The post is The Crucible – NYC and The Department of Education’s Mass Hysteria.
