Here's How The DOE Renewal Schools Can Actually Attract Quality Teachers.

I am strongly skeptical that the DOE renewal schools will be able to attract more than a handful of "highly effective" experienced teachers to their schools. Since no real "highly effective" quality teacher would seriously put there job in jeopardy under the new teacher evaluation system (VAM is 50% of a teacher's grade) by teaching in these renewal schools for chump change of $7.500 annually?  Maybe the DOE can do what a school in England did, recruit teachers from China to bring discipline and learning to the students.  Here is the three part BBC series of the experiment and its pretty funny if you ask me.

By the way,  I will be cruising to Bermuda for the week with Mrs. chaz and will not be posting until school starts on Tuesday September, 8th.  Have a nice final week off until the horror resumes.

Have a great time . Looking forward to your next blog.
P.S. can't view the video. Says it is private.

Because 80% of the students and parents are trash. That's what happens when they all have the same criminal background, and its the same 16 year olds having children. Poverty and criminality never ends...And we all know if we graded honestly, 10% would pass.

The link doesn't work. It says the videos are private. Have a great vacation.
