The Big Picture
School leaders in cities across the country have been pushing to revolutionize how teachers are evaluated, based at least in part on test-score data that isolates student progress.
What’s Happening Here
The San Diego Unified School District, however, isn’t interested in this revolution.
What It Means
The cursory evaluation system in place at San Diego Unified was the norm across the United States until fairly recently. But as education reformers have begun to realize that a half-century of their efforts has done little or nothing to push up student achievement, attention is now focusing on the sticky topic of teacher evaluation.
