If they are professional they should be evaluated like professionals.

There are many lazy & stupid people who become teachers for the easy work, hours and time off. Others who want to re-live their unfulfilled HS sports careers cuz they never grew past 5'5" tall. The new system should weed those losers out.

It's not about teaching being easy. It's about teachers's being held accountable for their work.

a teacher contract is yearly, If they don't like them, no contract. Union has nothing to say.

Some teachers teach with a stick.
Some teachers teach with empathy.

Just how does one effectually evaluate that ?

Kids grades? naw, to much of their parents stuff scrambled in there to judge.

Just how can you hold all teachers to the same standards?
No child left behind ?

Set me straight and you may get elected and solve the problem that has plagued mankind since at least yesterday.

'If they don't like them' OBVIOUSLY does not work! Look at NM statistics. That's s-t-a-t-i-s-t-i-c-s.You are failing miserably.

Teachers who teach with a stick should be put in jail,and should go to hell where they belong.

Teachers who have both the ability to teach and have empathy for students (affinity, appreciation, compassion, insight, pity, rapport, sympathy, warmth, comprehension, concord, recognition, soul) on all levels, will be more successful.

The measurement will be in the record of the teacher.

Professionals are held to standards in the workplace and are evaluated on their performance records.

You figure it out. Do your job. Or you might just get an F.

Works, unless your principal / district wants and grades you like you need to be teaching with a stick.

Ever seen a lunch room in school where all kids could not speak?

Why are you weary of this subject? Please explain. Is there really a school that does not allow speaking during lunch? That is just weird. You should turn the principal in to a higher authority. He/she has a mental issue.

Our kids were in 4 th and 6 th grade in Georgia.1987.
Quiet lunch it was called.
No one was allowed to speak. Period. I had the opportunity to have lunch with our kids on several occasions.
I found out first hand. I went toe to toe with principal. I was amazed at the position the school took. They were shocked that anyone would do it any different.
Also kids on this grade level never went outside during the class day. Between classes they marched single file, to their next class. No talking at class change either.
Weirdest thing I have ever seen.
Needless to say we left Georgia that same year.

Yes, teachers should be accountable for THEIR work, not the students' work. Lots of people think that is the same thing, but it is not. A teacher, even the best teacher, cannot force a student to perform well on a standardized test and that has become the primary measure of accountability.

When your doctor advises you to change your diet to get healthier, and you decide you'd rather not, who is actually accountable for the results??
DISAGREE

UGHHHHHHH "force a student to perform well on a standardized test" You are again missing the point! If a teacher is qualified to teach a subject and does so effectively, then the student will do well on the test. If the teacher is a dumbass, does not have the ability to teach all of her students, then the student will not do well, and the evaluation will be the judge. 50th out of 50!

.....now try to understand this point:

There are 50 states;

New Mexico places 50...last.....in education.

Are we getting that?

Ok, let's move on.....teachers are blaming parents and students. Are they saying NM parents and students are the most stupid people in the US?

Time to get real, "educators". YOU are not educating our children. How do ALL other states rank higher than we do? Is it really because we are THE dumbest? Or could it just possibly be that our system and its personnel are sorely lacking?

Such BS.

Let's look at businesses. If a business under-performs, it doesn't last long. Using your theory--how do we force people to use our business? If we are to be successful, we find a way. We don't blame the customer.

Good grief. If you are associated with education, I can understand your stupidity.

Well, at least all of this finger pointing is getting us somewhere. But at least everyone complaining understands the ins and outs of our educational system in New Mexico...
Unless teachers, parents, administrators, and the PED quit making excuses and get on the same page and support one another we will continue to be "50 out of 50."
I don't know, maybe it's too much to hope for, which is sad.
If that can't happen then i'm sure there are plenty of ineffective teachers, uninvolved parents, crappy admins, and clueless politicians to keep this wonderful circle of incompetence and failure going.
Ok sorry, I'm done.

Well, that's all fine and good, but what makes NM 50 out of 50? Why can't we figure out the answer? Maybe the school systems should take a look at other states and districts that have improved and use them as a model. Are we ALL just too stupid for that?
