As the teacher evaluation negotiations go down to the wire, I fully expect that our union leaders will cave to the Mayor and agree to a teacher evaluation system that will result in thousands of terminations two years down the road. It appears more and more likely that Mulgrew and company will capitulate to the DOE and put many of its members in danger of losing their job.
Since I assume the teacher evaluation system will be implemented in the 2013-14 school year, it will probably take until 2015 for the results to be reviewed and analyzed. While I have no clue what the results will be. I can make an education guess that 20% of the teachers are in danger of getting a rating of "ineffective" and a good 87% of them can kiss their job goodbye.
I am asking that the Delegate Assembly to vote with their members interests at heart and not what the Leadership tells them to do and say "NO" to a teacher termination program that destroys tenure tenure an "due process rights".
Happy Valentines Day!!
