As an administrator of a diverse school where nearly 75% of the students receive free or reduced priced lunch, I can relate to Principal Fryou with regards to the challenges and joy of working in a high poverty school. I have implemented many of the key elements she addresses in her article and our data reveals that we have made significant gains to close the achievement gap and as a result, our school is the highest performing school in the district. Although we are proud of the gains we have made, we have much more progress to make on our journey towards excellence. My hope is that our progress and momentum for change is not ephemeral by the unfunded mandates of the Common Core Curriculum, SBACtesting, teacher evaluation process and a shrinking school and city budget. Only time will tell.

The potential the evaluation process holds has been diminished by the rush to implement. It takes time to reflect on practice and have discussions about changing behaviors.
Terri Goldson's insight:
The controversy over the new teacher evaluation process is heating up. Was it designed to improve instructional practices or is it just another top down process that will need further refinement. Regardless of the overall intent, we must implement it with the hopes that instruction improves and courageous conversations take place to improve student outcomes. Knowledge IS POWER!
