The Teacher Quality Conversation Continues
posted by: Tim | January 17, 2012, 02:31 pm   


More and more articles seem to popping up every day on the issue of teacher quality in America’s schools. From New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s attempts to offer $20,000 bonuses to teachers that produce the students with the highest growth on standardized tests and $25,000 in loan forgiveness to top college graduates, to two new studies recently released that analyze the fairness of rating teachers based on student test scores, the talk is livening up.

Groups like PACE continue to grow, while unions are shrinking

This is probably not surprising to PACE members, but still worth acknowledging and even celebrating. I recently had the opportunity to comment for a news article that was reporting on the decline in recent years of union membership numbers; and conversely the growth of non-union teacher groups. It was reported that the NEA recently lost 100,000 members as more and more teachers grow tired of the policies, politics, and shortsightedness of the teachers unions. Now is the time to spread the word about PACE to teachers so that every knows they have a choice for their professional association!

 
PACE encourages you to get informed!

While PACE does not endorse or support any particular candidates or parties in political processes, we do encourage our members to get informed and make educated decisions at the voting booth.

There are several hotly contested school board elections that will be decided next week. The race for Denver's School Board has been garnering national media attention.  School board races can have a tremendous impact on the teaching profession and the overall system of education in each district. With this mind, I wanted to direct attention to one helpful, online resource. Ed News Colorado has set up an "Election Center" to provide information about the various candidates and issues that will soon be in front of voters.

Be an informed voter!
