Speak Up For Education and Kids

The term “corporate education reform” usually conjures up names like Michelle Rhee, ALEC and, of course, the Koch Brothers. While Rhee’s influence – or at least her starpower – has receded somewhat, the reach of ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Council) and Charles and David Koch continues to extend far and wide across the education spectrum.

Aurora EA President Amy Nichols and several of her members are featured on The NEA Foundation blog, highlighting their work to promote common understanding of new state standards for teacher evaluations to improve professional practice within Aurora Public Schools…

“Unfortunately, these standards offered little clarity around how they would actually look in practice so they were not helpful in identifying the strategies and instructional practices that teachers could actually use to improve student learning. In addition, they were not helpful to principals in assessing the use of those practices or in supporting the development of those practice…

For each standard, we developed a set of vocabulary and points of evidence for each rating level (basic, partially proficient, proficient, accomplished and exemplary) to ensure that all educator members and principals have the same perspective on the standards and professional practices, and what they could look like within different contexts and classrooms.”
