On Tweed "innumeracy" Parent activist Leonie Haimson exposes the sham of the DoE's school progress reports, report cards, data and statistics. She makes the point that the Natl Acad. of Sciences has said that "no system for evaluating teachers on the basis of test scores has yet been established that is ready for prime time, given all the inherently complex and imponderable factors that go into test scores, particularly at the classroom level. Any attempt to implement such a program, they urged, should be carefully tested and independently vetted, because it could very well have unfair and damaging consequences, not just to teachers but to our kids as well."
And, he says, "none of this money would be used to reduce class size."
