Unfair Expectations for Teachers!
Have you heard the ridiculous latest news? Governor Cuomo announced that teachers will continue to be graded on students' State test scores. If students' test scores continue to decline for two years in a row, teachers may face termination. This was discussed at a teachers meeting the other day. This is unfair and unjust for all teachers. Some students with special needs are required to take the test. For a teacher to be judged by their academic success is criminal and ridiculous. Not all students can meet the criteria. Some students are poor test takers in general. It is extremely unfair to judge teachers based on students' test scores. Students could have had a bad day as well while taking the exam. Why is there animosity showed toward educators of the world?
