Board of Education- Lisa Lloyd

Some position statements from Lisa Lloyd's relatively new website:

"Evaluate the Peer Assistance and Review (PAR) program, to ensure that it is providing both the support and assessment to teachers as was intended, or whether it is being used inappropriately to remove teachers. If the teachers are satisfied, then it is doing its job. If not, it needs to be reworked."
The Peer Assistance and Review program is run- in part- by MCEA.  If teachers don't like this- then we've got a serious problem.

Also this- the printing of illegal campaign materials.   Whoops.

  1. I don't understand the argument. The question should be is PAR effective, not if teachers like it. I would argue PAR is not an effective method to help struggling teachers grow professionally (at least not how it's used presently), nor an effective method to remove really ineffective teachers.
