"Emerging Findings from the Measures of Effective
Measures of Effective Teaching Project (MET)
March 6, 2012
Presented by Paulette Poncelet
Teachers might be interested in this presentation presented by Paulette Poncelet with assistance from Linda Lane, Jeri Lippert, and Jeannine French.
Questions from Board members were limited and essentially the responses contained words but not answers (a problem typical at Board Meetings).
Regina Holley asked a very relevant question about the “support” process for teachers in the evaluation milieu. J. French indicated that the process is still incomplete in that area. (Yet they claimed to be a “model”?)
There were very few in attendance even though it was held in Conference Room A.
And, contrary to the requirements of the Sunshine Law the Education Meeting was not published on the PPS Calendar.
The meeting was a great disappointment. It appears that meetings are held for the purpose of “documentation” of a meeting held.
Contrary to claims of PPS, they are not leading the nation in this effort, not are they being held up as a “model.” Quite the opposite is the reality. Just ask the folks at PDE. The PR machine functions well but rarely reflects truth or reality.
What can be done about this, those of you who believe the press releases?"
