UFT Bull Sh**

Read the entire post from our wonderful union here

One of my favorite Q & A's:

Won’t teachers be reluctant to teach high-needs students if student test scores become one component of their evaluation?

On the contrary, the new system no longer penalizes a teacher who chooses to work with high-needs students. The student achievement component of the evaluation system would be based on a growth model – getting a student from one point to the next; it would not be based on whether all students reached a certain proficiency level. As a teacher, if you have helped your students to progress academically, no matter where they started from, your achievement would be recognized.

Anyone who can move this class along deserves merit pay.

It seems our union just keeps selling us out and the spin never stops.
