    The only effective and fair evaluation of teachers is peer evaluation, performed 100% by a teacher's teaching colleagues. Teachers, not administrators, are the experts at teaching.

    It's a sad day for our schools when teachers are evaluated on students' meaningless standardized test scores. It's a fact that these tests measure little other than students' family income, which, the last time I checked, teachers cannot control.

    This is just another step toward the complete assembly line privatization of our schools and the end of creativity, innovation, and fun in public education. Without those last three factors, there is no learning. Test scores do not measure learning.
