An admiistrator is reported as saying that "When [she] was growing up in Moon, her mother talked to school officials and chose her elementary school teacher every year. When she was a principal at Mifflin Elementary, she had parents telling her which teachers they wanted." http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/opinion/brian-oneill/her-educated-answer-isnt-about-money-631987/ Not just in Moon and Mifflin, parents and school officials know who the good teachers are. Will the new complicated and expensive evaluation systems really tell us anything we don't already know?
