See who is driving change forward
The Hope Street Group interviewed teachers, education officials, policymakers, and more in states implementing new or revised evaluation programs, including Delaware, Tennessee, Florida, and Louisiana. With educator-evaluation reform a relatively new movement, the interviews revealed some of the challenges and issues states are facing.
The experiences of the participants below show that creating a quality teacher evaluation program is an enormous and difficult undertaking involving designing, planning, communicating, and several other steps necessary to implement a new system. Suggestions and examples of how to tackle the various steps could be useful to the states in the early phases of building an evaluation program.
Each of the following educators and policymakers have been on the frontlines of education reform and took the time to share what they've learned so other states could benefit. Hope Street Group thanks each participant for contributing and making the Playbook possible!
