Throughout the 2013 – 2014 academic year, the leadership of the BH-BL Teachers Association have collaboratively worked to develop a position that represents our perspective on the Common Core and A.P.P.R.
This position is expressed here.
We call for:
1) An immediate and permanent moratorium on using Common Core based evaluations to assess teachers.
2) A de-linkage of the APPR from state test scores. Allow local districts to take back control of teacher evaluations.
3) Finally, allow the Common Core to be what it is designed to be: a set of curricular standards.
