Intro

A blog by Karen Butterfield, Ed.D.

New America released a new policy paper, Beyond Ratings: Re-envisioning State Teacher Evaluation Systems as Tools for Professional Growth on March 10, in collaboration with the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ). Commissioned by the Ford Foundation, the report:

• Summarizes 30 years of research about how teachers learn and lead (also drawing on stories of thousands of teachers CTQ has worked with since their founding in 1998)

• Examines current reforms' limitations and note some promising emergent examples (like Social Justice Humanitas Academy in LAUSD);

• Identifies three promising shifts (see them here) that could be leveraged to create an effective system of teacher leadership and learning; and

• Describes next steps that stakeholders (including federal policymakers, USDOE, state education leaders, superintendents, and others) can take to advance teacher leadership for a more equitable public education system.
