We do teach students. It makes teaching relational and situational. It is hermeneutic as we read the (con)text we teach within.

How are the requirements for teacher evaluations affecting principals?

Here are some numbers put together by the Center for American Progress, a Washington-based think tank: 

248: The number of hours the median principal in Michigan reported spending on activities related to teacher evaluations. Another way of putting it? The equivalent of 31 full working days.25: The number of teachers the average principal in Connecticut was responsible for evaluating in a given year, according to a principal survey.6:  The number of hours Chicago principals reported that it took to complete one evaluation.

The full Center for American Progress report can be found here. Its recommendations call on educators and policymakers to:

  • Redesign school organizational charts and job descriptions;
  • Develop instructional leadership capacity around the principal position;
  • Focus principal training on coaching teachers;
  • Provide technological supports that allow principals to record and share information; and
  • Build the capacity of  central office administrators to support principals.

These studies highlight the amount of work it takes to be an effective principal-- and with new mandates all the time, it doesn't get easier.

Government issues - I chose this resource because it the true concerns administration struggles with in regards to what they have to do to follow the teacher evaluation requirements.  I hope to share this with administration to help them relate to what other administrators are dealing with.  It is a timely requirement which takes up quite a bit of the days of the school year.
