TEACHERS CALL HISD EVALUATION UNFAIR!

Press Release:

The Houston Federation of Teachers today released the results of their survey of the HISD teachers showing that only 6% of the HISD teachers consider the new teacher evaluation to be fair and objective. 

Equally of concern is that 76% of the 1269 respondents indicated that they felt the new evaluation instrument was being used for retaliation and as a “gotcha” by the principals.
 
The dissatisfaction that teachers have with the instrument may be the reason that HISD has lost an 485 teachers since the beginning of this past August through January 31.  It may also be the reason that  as of today HISD has 212 unfilled teachers vacancies posted on their web site.
