    We are looking for a quick fix. I see this even among my administrative cohorts ...who should know better. We are extremely busy. We have dozens of mostly mind-numbing reports to churn out. We deal with the everyday issues that arise in every school.

    We are expected to evaluate each teacher every year. We are now required to use "student achievement"(read "student test scores") as a factor in evaluation. Since the State of Michigan is moving toward results that include the gain or loss for each student and for a class as a whole, it will become increasingly easier to simply use the state test results to evaluate teachers; which of course is precisely what Mike Flannagan and the MDE want.
