Where now for school improvement? - David Didau: The Learning Spy

Where now for school improvement? - David Didau: The Learning Spy | School leadership | Scoop.it

Holding Teachers To Account Fairly

Holding Teachers To Account Fairly | School leadership | Scoop.it
This is a follow up to my recent post asking Should Managers Tell Teachers What To Do? A lot of the discussion about teaching focusses on problems related to teacher accountability. In particular: lesson observations; work scrutinies; assigning responsibility for exam results. It's difficult to unpick whether the problems with these things are fundamental, i.e. that…
