Does the traditional teacher evaluation system improve student learning? Has it failed?
Ask 1000 teachers how many of them are becoming more professional, effective or fulfilled through the use of the present system and probably only a few will say “yes”. We have a failed system and we need to change it.
Over the last 30 years, Bill Powell and Ochan Kusuma-Powell have worked with a large number of teachers and school leaders in over 50 countries worldwide. In this book they propose a simple (but not simplistic), coherent, common sense alternative that has its roots in what they know about student and adult learning.
