Hope everyone had a smooth close out at school.
It was personally bittersweet to see "quality" teachers I have grown to like on a personal level and respect on a professional level pack up to leave. Knowing why they must and how it happened has given me a quiet resolve to continue. All the press release spin coming out of the Superintendent's office, the continued CTA capitulation, and just knowing what next year will be like fuels me. Hopefully we will find out just how many were forced to teach out-of-field.
Thank God for our blog archives. When I begin to feel weary I WILL LOOK BACK. I will NOT forget.

By the way: if Elia's bonus was based on "faulty" 3rd grade FCAT data will it be taken back?
What about the kids who got promoted on the faulty data? Their current teachers have got to make MORE than adequate yearly progress to make up for it. Think they'll get Performance, ah, STAR, ah, MAP pay?
