Some Ohio teachers displeased with new evaluation system

Associated Press


A state report shows Ohio teachers aren’t particularly happy with the current way they are evaluated, but they are worried about a new system that will take effect after next year.

The Columbus Dispatch obtained a copy of the report through a records request. It is due out Monday.

Each of Ohio’s 614 school districts must adopt new evaluations that count student performance as half of the score by the 2013-14 school year. Individual districts can come up with their own plans.

Some teachers surveyed for they report said if they are going to be rated based on student performance, administrators should be too.

Some of the teachers also worried about biased administrators unfairly handling the evaluations.

Educators say they want classroom observation to be part of the ratings.

For as long as I can remember, teachers have been under paid, mothers and fathers for our children and when something goes wrong in school, the first to be blamed. I grew up in the Cleveland Public school system which was a very good system. The teachers cared about the success of the students and where necessary were allowed to administer discipline. Now the state has stepped in, took control and is trying to make everything a dictatorship. The teachers don't control the money, the administration does. Look at the contracts for the teachers; they are receiving less and less and getting more and more responsibilities.
