    1. Hi Paul,

      My second post, “Vol.#2: Measuring My 2¢ On Merit“, was about my experience with this. Basically, it comes down to how you measure teacher effectiveness. Boiling kids down to a bubble-sheet number, and then boiling down what I did with them to that, is a flawed system at best.

      After you read it, feel free to comment & we can discuss there!

      Many Thanks,
