The collateral damage of an “F” school grade * (by Lisa Fontaine)
When you’re a teacher or work in another capacity as a professional in our public schools, you hear lots of things that don’t quite ring true. “You have the summers off” is one refrain I’ve often heard. Well, this summer was far from some idyllic vacation, at least for me. In fact, there were parts of this summer that were heart-breaking and gut-wrenching. This happened when I received a phone call that announced that the state of Florida had determined I was an “ineffective” teacher and would be removed from my school. This same horror story happened to six other teachers at my school. Since then, I have watched our school being torn apart. First the teachers, then the entire administration. You see, I work at a school that the state has chosen to label with an “F” grade. The students at the school are all eligible for 100 percent free lunch. Of the 39 students who were assigned to my classes on the first day of school, 23 were gone by the time the school year finished. The school was without running water in more than half our classrooms. The school is housed in more portables than real classrooms. The school is not properly funded. The school doesn’t have the technology needed to help our students. The school couldn’t fund basic teaching supplies like a board to write on. The school didn’t have the educational programs other struggling schools were given. My profession, the one I went to college for, the one I am so passionate about, took a huge hit. Those of us who teach in that school are second guessing our career choice. We are second guessing our worth in our chosen profession. All of this, of course, based on some test score that labeled our school with an “F”. Well, here is what that “F” grade didn’t say. We worked hard. We funded our own classrooms out of our own pockets. We wrote grants, we found volunteers. We cared, we loved, we made a difference. We made sure our students knew they mattered and we did what was best for our students. It is a sad day for education when a test score trumps doing what is best for children. I’m not advertising the name of our school, because I don’t want any more of a stigma than that “F” grade that the state hung on us just because of their ever-changing, standardized-test-based formulas. Just know that these are the kinds of challenges that teachers and education professionals face every day in some of the public schools that aren’t in the most affluent neighborhoods. By the way, I do still have MY job. My test scores even went up! The hell I went through ended after I proved there was an error with my scores and I in fact had been deemed “highly effective” and had even received a bonus. But the state didn’t determine all that — I had to point it out to them. I may have had a happy ending to my story, but I have mixed feelings about the world of education and where I fit in. It is not OK to treat people like this. The other six teachers will not be returning. They were good teachers. They were good people. It doesn’t appear to me, my fellow teachers or administrators that we were the “ineffective” ones. Because of the actions of the Legislature, the governor and the education establishment in Tallahassee, the 2017-18 school year is off to a great start.

Are teachers professionals? *

Are teachers professionals? It seems like a simple question with an obvious answer, but for years teachers have been treated by policymakers as anything but professionals. Their judgments about how to educate and evaluate children are not taken into account, and they are evaluated by measures that statisticians say aren’t valid assessment tools (such as when teachers are evaluated by the standardized test scores of students they don’t have and subjects they don’t teach). Teaching is often deemed “a calling,” which is a way of saying that teachers are born and that teaching doesn’t really require rigorous training beyond knowing the subject being taught. In this post, educators Todd Hawley and Adam Jordan answer the question asked in the headline.
