NJ Teachers: Your Chance To Speak Out About New Evaluation System!

Regular readers know what I think about AchieveNJ, the new teacher evaluation system here in New Jersey:

AchieveNJ: aka "Operation Hindenburg"

This rushed, poorly-researched, based-on-a-mistruth, innumerate, anti-collaborative, inappropriately norm-based, waste-of-time system is a disaster in the making. NJ teachers, you're already dealing with the intrusive SGO regime - just wait until we start throwing SGPs into the mix. 

What can be done? Well...

It looks like The NJ Association of School Administrators (NJASA), the NJ Education Association (NJEA) and the NJ Principals and Supervisors Association (NJPSA) are asking practitioners to participate in a survey about all this. Sadly, there's no comment section - but there are several questions that allow you to express your opinion, anonymously, about your perceptions of AchieveNJ.

Perhaps you'd like to add your thoughts? Just click here.

Oh, the humanity...
