BEST Report

  • A-F

    Posted by Communication Services at 1/6/2017

    Across Texas, the talk this week in many education circles has been about the ​provisional A-F ratings that were released. The results were published just days prior to the legislative session in Austin. One reason for the timing is so that legislators can make any adjustments to the system if needed. And...adjustments are certainly needed!

     

    When I saw the results, a few questions came to mind:

    • Don't they know that our work in schools is complex and can't be simplified into a single "scarlet letter" grade? 
    • Don't they know that we already have too much of a testing culture in Texas and the more "high stakes" the test becomes, the more people will feel like they need to t​​e​a​ch to the test?
    • Don't they know that parents don't want more emphasis on the test?
    • Don't they know that it seems like the A-F system is designed to artificially show how schools are failing in order to make a better case for vouchers in this upcoming legislative session?

    I am not against testing, and I am not against accountability. In fact, Texas students, teachers, principals and district leaders have never been more accountable in the history of public education. But this bureaucratic intrusion into classrooms has got to stop.

     

    I hope you will make your voice heard with our legislators, so that you can shape the future of our profession. This week in the ​Fort Worth Star Telegram, our own Senator Konni Burton, whose kids attended GCISD schools and who lives in the GCISD community, was commenting about another topic and encouraged feedback from citizens in a tweet. Her quote from yesterday's editorial is as follows: “Too many think social media is the legislative process. It is not. Calling, writing, & emailing the legislators' OFFICE is." I have found our legislators to be open to feedback and to be thankful for hearing how constituents feel about the issues. So if you have an opinion, please let it be heard.

     

    We will certainly hear more about A-F and other educational issues as we move through this legislative session.

     

    The one constant through all of this is that our caring and professional staff will work hard every day just as always: doing our BEST to provide an excellent education for our students. Thank you for putting all of the noise aside and taking care of kids!

     

    BEST,
    RR
