NJ Spotlight--Op-Ed: Itís Time to Add Value To New Jersey Teacher Evaluations

The current system of evaluating teachers in the Garden State all but ignores an extremely important, if controversial, tool

I was a New Jersey school principal and district superintendent for more than 25 years. I estimate that I did more than 2,000 formal teacher observations. The process by which New Jersey teachers are evaluated has changed dramatically in the last several years. However, this process is seriously flawed and occasionally has been politically motivated.
