Friday, September 24, 2010 The rating of teachers on the Internet (in California) and the culture of results – The teachers answered "present" – "The school, arrogant corpse" – The rating of teachers on the Internet ( California) and the culture of results the Los Angeles Times has launched a website rating of 6,000 teachers working in 470 primary schools in the school district of Los Angeles (California), the second largest US district. All this is made public on the Internet: just type the name of a teacher or a school and, within seconds, appears on the screen indicating its assessment "proven performance" in terms of success vis-a -vis its students. We remember "notetonprof.com", a site that, France has made a lot of noise. Here the operation is of another magnitude as it is launched by one of the largest newspapers in the country as we Ouest France recalls that devotes an article to that information. The operation is also encouraged by the Secretary of State of Education in California who considers it useful to develop and publish the results for all teachers. The union of the Californian teachers' This is not an educational tool, but a weapon to weaken the working conditions and, above all, to further restrict what students should learn. ". For the question that is asked is twofold: can we and should we evaluate teaching and action of the education service? If the states-uniens teachers do not challenge the principle of evaluation of the educational activity and so it is called in France the "culture of results", they question both the criteria (success standardized tests) and the idea of ??an individual assessment which ignores the context in which educational action is "Rate of value to a teacher based on the success of its students' test is empty meaning if we do not take into account other data, more economic and social "This obsession with" results culture ", it is also found in France. Often he fails again, the social determinants that may be at work and fears to some teachers that lead to a competition between teachers and schools. The Pedagogical Cafe Expresso in his day devoted a paper to a report of inspections of Education on "the implementation of the reform of primary education." But this summary note above shows how national assessments are to become key elements of the flight school. Francois Jarraud noted that the authors stress that "the strong opposition (to the assessments of CE1 and CM2) raised in the second grade general inspections gradually extinguished," while acknowledging that Depp's conduct an earnings recovery. These assessments are presented as the school's transformation lever. The primary role of these evaluations is to evaluate teachers. "Concerns remain about the implied assessment of the teacher's action through the students. The concept of performance measurement is ambiguous to some, contested in principle by others … Student achievement remains very few included in the inspection reports "teachers regret inspectors who consider it" mitigates the direct responsibility on student achievement. educational Leadership proximity should help overcome this reluctance. " Will all of us tomorrow Californian teachers? The path is narrow between the refusal of any incursion and any judgment in his teaching practice and management by results. It is indeed useful than any structure, as any public official, schools can evaluate their efforts to regulate it and make it evolve. But the excesses exist and teachers must be vigilant and remember that if it can be under certain conditions an "obligation of result" we must not forget also that we must match them there "an obligation of means" … The teachers meet always present Following Thursday's day of action. According to the unions, almost one teacher in two went on strike yesterday in Education. According to figures from the FSU, almost 55% of teachers went on strike in primary and 45% in secondary education, against 62% and 55% in the previous day of September 7. For its part, the Ministry of Education, which uses a different calculation method (which we have already spoken), evoked a total of 25.8% of strikers. The SNUipp-FSU said it had sent a letter to senators, who must review the reform project from 5 October to alert the "deep sense of injustice and anger on the part of school teachers ". "The school, arrogant corpse" France Soir launched a call for evidence on "Are you or were you happy at school? "Many texts arrived some of which are quite touching.
