The Chancellor Data Report Shows That Dennis Walcott Gets A Zero.
In the uproar that followed the release of the bogus "teacher data reports" (TDR) it is only fair that the Chancellor also be given a numerical grade on his ability to run the Department of Education. Unlike the complex and complected mathematical formula that only blogger JD2718 can understand, I simplified it to an easily understandable equation.
CDR = I + Tm + Sa + Cr + Pi +Sg
I = Independent thought from the Mayor.
Tm = Teacher morale.
Sa = Student academic achievement.
Cr = Career & college readiness.
Pi = Parent Involvement.
Sg = Racial/Income student achievement gap.
The Chancellor has shown not one ounce of independent thought from the Mayor's.
Moreover, under the Chancellor's tenure, teacher morale has sunk to an all time low.
There has been no improvement in student academic achievement under Dennis Walcott.
The same is true when it comes to "career and college readiness" rates.
Under Dennis Walcott parent involvement in DOE policy decisions are still non-existent.
Finally, the racial/income student achievement gap has remained unacceptably wide. Therefore, when I input the data into my formula here is what I get.
CDR = 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = "ZERO".
Yes, the Mayor's poodle, Chancellor Dennis Walcott, gets a big fat "zero" in his Chancellor Data Report.
