STATEMENT FROM SYDNEY MORRIS AND EVAN STONE, COFOUNDERS AND CO-CEOS OF EDUCATORS 4 EXCELLENCE, ON MET PROJECT REPORT: “The MET Project’s report finally provides conclusive evidence that a multimeasured evaluation system consisting of student growth data, student surveys and several observations by multiple observers can positively support individual educators and allow them to grow as professionals. These findings on teacher evaluation are ideas that Educators 4 Excellence members not only strongly support, but also have long advocated for in E4E policy papers in both New York City and Los Angeles. We hope that districts and unions currently negotiating over teacher evaluation systems take heed of this report and understand how important this issue is for the success of teachers and their students.” ###
For far too long, education policy has been created without a critical voice at the table – the voice of classroom teachers. For far too long, education policy has been created without a critical voice at the table – the voice of classroom teachers. Educators 4 Excellence (E4E), a teacher-led organization, is changing this dynamic by placing the voices of teachers at the forefront of the conversations that shape our classrooms and careers. With a quickly growing national network of more than 7,000 educators united by the E4E Declaration of Teachers’ Principles and Beliefs, E4E teachers can learn about education policy and research, network at E4E’s event series with like-minded colleagues and important education policymakers, and take action by advocating for teacher-created policy recommendations that lift student achievement and the teaching profession.
