The Crack Team at SBSB would like to thank the gracious hosts of Educators4Excellence for the comedy and the coffee and Dunkin' Munchkins that were generously given at today's youth rally at City Hall park in support of the new evaluation system that is being advocated.
As we know,
40% of a teacher's evaluation will be based on tests. Twenty percent on
normal standardized tests and the other 20% on God knows what.
Sadly, that first 20% will be using the convoluted algorithm of Value Added Measurement.
Crack Team wished to ask some of the E4E followers if they can explain
what exactly VAM is and how what exactly is the algorithm formula.
Fortunately we came across someone that is shy and did not wish to give
his name. For the purpose of professional bloggerism that is so rampant
here at SBSB we have decided to call this person, Eric Cartman.
one can see, he is rather confused by the question. Or, it could be
that might be an Ellen Jamesian and acts as if his tongue has been
surgically removed. The Crack Team though has ascertained that his
independent thought process has been surgically removed and we are sure
that it can be had back one day if he asks nicely.
But a good time was had by all the subversives today. There is more to come on today's rally.
