Tony private schools aren’t paying their teachers based on test scores

My child should not be responsible for anyone’s pay based on one test on one day. . . . I keep checking the tony private schools to see when they are going to pay their teachers based on test scores and I have yet to find one that thinks this is credible nor do any believe in this data-driven model of high stakes testing for their students.

  1. Fordham? really? And Petrilli at that.

    That’s like taking environmental advice from an oil company CEO on the payroll of a cattle industry “think tank”.

  2. I teach at a private school. Not only is it non-tony, it is also non-testing. We use the ERBs once a year. We take the data and stuff it in a drawer, more or less. And we don’t try to hide the underperforming kids — because they matter as people, not statistics.
