As a parent of three daughters educated in the public education system, I witnessed a parade of jaded teachers that did nothing to control bullying of the weaker citizens in out society...our children. I did not realize how tramatic my girls' education was until they reached adulthood. As a dedicated healthcare worker, I do not have the protection being tenured without demonstrating my ability of performin my job at top prerformance everyday. How to evaluate teachers? That is a tough question...lots of damaging education experiences happens behing closed doors. Maybe there should be a team approach to teaching where the strengths of all that are apart the team is utilized with a age range being involved. The will also be required to evaluate how well everyone on the team are functioning with the students. I agree, it is electric when go into a classroom with a involved competent, creative teacher. The students also exhibit this electirc excitement for new education experinces. I heard lots of good stories about excellent teachers...some of these excellent where a focus of jealousy and eventually left the system...this behavior with the heavy reponsibility of our future should not be tolerated. I really would like to support unions but I would like to see union work to uphold standards and establish a way of evaluating teachers.....just like I would like to see physicians monitor poor physician practice through the AMA.
