On Test Scores in Evals and Changing My Mind

I say often there is no magic teacher tree and that if we're going to improve the quality of schools in Washington it's going to be through a. identifying and retaining high quality teachers and b. further developing the current crop of teachers through high quality professional development (HB1345). That said, if a practice is so loathed by excellent educators, if a practice is so divisive, if a practice is so hated that excellent, solutions oriented teachers are saying it makes them want out of the career field and distrust the TPEP model, then in good conscious I can not support it.
