Picture 13dddd.png

#joycefdn The Joyce Foundation has just put out a "pro-teacher" parent guide to teacher effectiveness policies that it hopes will also be helpful to teachers, legislators, school board members, and administrators.   Telling the story of two teachers who get different amounts of support, the guide is intended to explain to parents why we parents why the school system needs  to improve how we recruit, support, evaluate, and reward teachers in order to ensure all students get a great education.  NB:  I did some consulting work for Joyce a few years ago.
