Absurdity in Ed reform continues in the US. Is #bced next? 

Let’s make sure our schools never go here! The nullification of teacher professionalism has simply gone way to far! It looks NY wants to chase career educators away from their vocation. Recruiting talented teachers is already at a crisis. Professionals evaluations based a a high stakes exam is proven repeatedly to be invalid and unreliable measure of competencies. 

This policy clearly hammers the opportunities and integrity of ‘public’ education ( PS ) and leaves private schools unscathed. Can’t current politicians see the deep sweeping consequences of disenfranchising the middle and lower class? A prosperous and civil society need the students these pleading public school teachers rally for.
