I have here the link to Diane Ravitch´s speech at the AFT convention. It is a speech that inspires, and touches base on a LOT of the issues facing educators today. Listen as she mentions how teachers should really be evaluated. Not by being ¨motivated¨ by a Performance Based Compensation System, that is for sure to encourage more devotion to high stakes testing, which will continue to funnel BILLIONS of dollars to test companies like Pearson. Take a few minutes from your time, and watch the video. I welcome your input!!
