*UPDATE: As of 7:00 pm see in comments that Brizard has told principals to make TeacherFit discretionary.
The Tribune, Sun Times, and Catalyst all weigh in with catch-up coverage of the TeacherFit mini-scandal -- filling in some new information about where the program comes from, why it's being used, what it cost, etc:
Critics: CPS test for teacher applicants leads to ‘blacklisting’: A new questionnaire that probes the “soft skills” needed to be a teacher has resulted in what critics call the “blacklisting’’ of hundreds of potential Chicago Public School teachers — including some who already had job offers, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.
Teacher screening test faces rocky roll-out: New teacher Jennifer Kraakevik graduated from Illinois State University in May with endorsements that ought to make her a hot commodity in the teaching market--in bilingual education, language arts, Spanish, and middle-grades education.
CPS' new survey for potential teachers creates stir: An online survey that weeds out applicants for Chicago Public Schools teaching positions before principals can even see their resumes has come under fire from applicants and union officials as being subjective, inaccurate and unfair.
What if anything new did you learn, and who covered it best?
