Buyout for teachers saves money

Jay Mathews of the Washington Post blogged about this today. The article he cites essentially admits that buying out the oldest teachers is not the best way to go, but it is the most practical way. I like practical. But we must also push toward new evaluation processes that help the education field more readily identify who should be dismissed and when.

I was over at this blog of Accomplished California Teachers and was drawn to this thought provoking article from the Wall Street Journal about performance reviews in the business world. Great read. And it has got me thinking more on how we should evaluate teachers in the real world.
