Should Teacher Evaluations Be Made Public? [POLL]
Soon, there will be evaluations for New Jersey public school teachers. However, the public will not be able to access these evaluations.
According to the Daily Record,
The proposal for yearly evaluations for teachers and principals sailed through both houses of the Legislature last month. But the 18-page bill contains a barely noticed, one-sentence passage shielding the grades: “Information related to the evaluation of a particular employee shall be maintained by the school district, shall be confidential, and shall not be accessible to the public.”
How do you feel about this? Will this play a factor in the amount of effort a teacher puts into his or her job?
