A troubling reason why principals are not telling subpar teachers they need to get better? It takes too much time. Jay Matthews of the Washington Post explores new research on this subject.
One principal told Matthew Kraft of Brown University and Allison Gilmour of Temple University that the demands of extra observations and support were too great. "Once somebody is identified as Unsatisfactory, the amount of work, the amount of observation, the amount of time and attention that it requires to support them can become overwhelming.”
Michael Petrilli is reflecting on the results of the 2017 Education Next Poll today and notices how support for common standards has actually rebounded this year, with proponents outnumbering opponents three to one!
In both parties, there's been a sharp drop in public support for charter schools. What's going on? Check out the results for yourself on EdNext.org, then make sure to tune in for a special episode of the Education Next podcast, featuring Marty West and Paul Peterson. ednxt.co/2x4ewvw
