Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"

Teaching Reforms

I read this in today's New York Times
Education officials across the country are increasingly focused on the two critical reform tasks: developing more effective teacher evaluation systems and speeding up the glacial pace of disciplinary hearings for teachers charged with misconduct. The American Federation of Teachers, the country’s second-largest teachers’ union, has wisely chosen to work with state legislatures and local school districts to help shape these new systems rather than try to block them.

If only our NUT showed similar common sense, we might get some improvement in education in this country!
