We Evaluate Doctors. Why Not Chicago Teachers? - Businessweek

We Evaluate Doctors. Why Not Chicago Teachers? - Businessweek:

Evaluating teachers solely on the basis of their students’ scores on standardized tests can accidentally penalize good teachers while rewarding bad ones. It also gives teachers a strong incentive to teach to the test, which encourages what New York educator Kate McKeown calls RAMIT: “regurgitate, acculturate, memorize, isolate, and threaten.”"
