I spoke with my evaluator (who has been doing this going on 20 year, she is a teacher in another district, not one I am in) and she said the same thing that I have heard from others-this is all about a power-trip
for the districts and she sees no way (and I totally agree
) that they (the districts) will give this up, they would sooner like to do away
with evaluation and take that over too! There are some (lots depending on who you talk to) that still hate HS and feel that they are "better
" at teaching/assessing
I DO NOT want to see rules change that may make things harder
and taking away the districts role, I really feel, could cause far more complicated problems. I really don't see this bill passing, I feel there is too strong opposition to it, it's a "cash-cow" for the districts, they certainly don't mind paying to "over-see" HSers and I can't see public support for it.
|I'm curious about the "evaluator" part. What makes someone qualified to be an evaluator?
Regarding evaluations/evaluators - this site may help answer your questions -www.askpauline.com
(for some reason when I copied the site it doesn't take you there- go under EVALUATIONS)
It is guessed (by my evaluator), based on who she is and how she writes the evaluation, and the fact that I not only turn in her report but several others, (these are letters that state what my child did, hours worked on projects, etc) that is the reason that no one has ever requested seeing our portfolio. I give tons of documentation, I know lots of people only want to provide the minimum.
To many HSers are the same as NON-vacers, some think they are parasites.
