New Mexico’s first round of controversial teacher evaluations was released to school districts Thursday and graded 3 out of 4 teachers in the state as effective or better.

The evaluations provide a snapshot, but not a complete picture, of teacher effectiveness in the state. Just 73 percent of the state’s nearly 22,000 educators are reflected in the results released by the New Mexico Public Education Department. Santa Fe Public Schools, for instance, missed the May 6 deadline to submit materials to the state and therefore is not included in the ratings.

    The old system did not work. Teaching, learning and parenting will all evolve around the technology that has become integral to our social evolution. Testing of facilitators (teachers through administrators) must become as common as student testing. The testing process itself will evolve; parent/teacher communication has increased since the old days and we will realize the power of Internet based, real-time interaction. Sometimes, it has to get worse before it gets better, especially when we are repairing the elementary and secondary education systems. This is just the beginning.

    "Skandera, on the other hand, noted that just last week, President Barack Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan praised New Mexico for adopting the teacher evaluation system."

    Duncan's "praise" is not of the administration's evaluation policy, but of aligning with Duncan's program.

    This is the same old tired system used in the Richardson administration. As a supervisor I was not allowed to give an exemplary to any employee. Especially if it put us over the 1.5 percent. Liars make up the statistics.
