I like your thinking theshadow. Everyone was clamoring for teacher ratings. Much like the Affordable Health Care Act, is this the best solution? Probably not. I would rather see people work towards improving or tweaking the system to make it better rather than all the negativity. Also, I am not surprised 90% of teachers rathed effective. Now, the school systems need to work withthe unions to either 1) help improve the 10%, or 2)get rid of the 10%. And, Tenyear(sp??) must go. No place for this in teaching anylonger. No one should be guaranteed a job.

Bobbo....I don't know you well enough from this forum to know if you are being sarcastic or not. However, as a parent of an elementary school child who has researched Common Core extensively....the S LO's sound great on paper. however, they are age and developmentally inappropriate. They are causing frustration, stress, and many children who once loved school want to stay in bed. Not because they don't want to put forth the effort--but because even the teachers don't understand the modules and they are confused beyond belief.

Before Common Core our friend Rick Mills and his minion District Superintendents and NYSED staff watered down assessments, curricula and yet pronounced effective education and student academic growth. ALL LIES!! The result of this debacle and fraud upon NYS was to dismantle all of Rick Mill's false efforts and structures. Of course, you all know that didn't you, everyone blogging here knows the rigor being expected now is to help our children compete for their future not our future. Time to buck up get working, learning and achieving, and grow up for a future yet undefined.

Now use the data and send the 10% packing. If not it is a total waste of money. So glad the little scallywag children are now out of school. This stuff makes the little whiskers on mrs scallywags blue chin mole stand on end

When can we start rating the parents? Your child is not in school, your ineffective. You don't send your child with supplies, your ineffective! You don't make them do their homework, your ineffective! Maybe they should get their checks cut, I bet THEY would rate higher. But lets not hold them accountable just the teachers!

Hey Mr. King,Mr. Cuomo and B.O.R, You talk like instruction couldn't possibly have been rigorous and engaging before common core came along. All it has done is made 3rd graders have to learn 5th and 6th grade material. Then make sure you test them on that material to try to make teachers look bad. It is a credit to all teachers that 90% still meet the challenge. Going after teachers through kids is a poor practice. Don't need a state run, one size fits all, evaluation system. Let the principals who my tax dollars pay for do that in house. They have three years to do so with an easy and cheap way to remove poor ones. Teachers have been evaluated for centuries as effective or ineffective by the best system and most critical eye of all.........the 22 faces in front of them.

Don't worry "common core" will fix it all with every student will be the same. With emphasis on need for less teachers once in place. To bad for teachers future.

All this money. A cheaper method would be to assign an administrator to review the 1% that are ineffective, carefully document the teacher, fight the union on them and rid them from the schools. That would be cheaper. Still expensive, but not nearly as expensive as the current APPR system.

Carlaw...have you ever seen what is required to be submitted for each and every teacher? I looked at a friend's form which was about 45 pages long. A disgusting amount of time, money and energy is being wasted. Evaluating teachers has practically become a full time job for principals instead of being leaders of education.

What a waste of money and time to reach this conclusion. The money and time should have been spent on our kids.
