The biggest story in education is the LA Times on value-added scores of LA school teachers, the paper publishing names & picture of teachers with the scores I have been asked by several people to write on the subject here, but since I am not myself a psychometrician and there are real technical issues, I have been attempting to leave it to other people. And there is a wealth of commentary on the subject in the last few days, too much for me to have absorbed.
Perhaps I will write about that issue, or other issues that concern me. I am never unconcerned about matters affecting schools, teachers and most of all students. But this morning my reflection is also on broader issues.
So I invite you to continue reading as I offer my morning mental meanderings in the brief period before I again become fully immersed in school and students.
