Re: “School house rocked

While not new to the field of education, I am proud to be a "new" teacher who has left Harrison School District. I witnessed many scenarios similar to those discussed in this article: teachers not being renewed for invented reasons, other teachers with 20 years experience or masters degrees receiving a ranking of "Progressing." I watched teachers' data drop when 2 or more of their high performing students withdrew before the final AYP tests results came in. Thus it appeared that a higher percentage of their students were not proficient. (This happened several classrooms just in my school.)
Ultimately I feel that this system puts kids in an unfair situation. And even those who learn how to take tests really well will not be prepared to think critically, work collaboratively, or provide creative solutions to complex problems in their life or work. Many of these kids already have a hard enough time at home. I refuse to add to their problems by placing them in an impossible and inhumane system at school as well. No amount of money would make this a tolerable situation.
