In light of this study, what recommendations can you make for policy shifts given that our teachers’ evaluation scores do impact their ability to take advantage of leadership opportunities, as Dr. Stewart pointed out.
Jonathan Feinstein
01:16:00
Appreciate the connection to teacher, school and district leadership opportunity
Gini Pupo-Walker
01:16:27
Lindsey - our second panel will discuss this very issue.
Jonathan Feinstein
01:16:58
It also makes me wonder: What pedagogical practices are we failing to see and value?
Eric Atkins
01:21:23
When we lost black principals and staff after Brown v. board we lost those who hired people. Look at Lost History of Horace Tate
Jonathan Feinstein
01:22:22
@Eric - thanks for the recommendation
Shonka'an Saint-Fleur
01:23:49
The board of education should create a standard evaluation rubric if it doesn't exist. That's not fair. You should be able to know how to prepare just as the students know how to prepare for tests.

Hi everyone - Aryana Bolourian, Associate at Education First Consulting. I may have to drop early...where can this recording be accessed?
Gini Pupo-Walker
01:25:33
We'll share the recording with all registrants. Thanks for joining us Aryana!
Maryam Hill
01:25:37
Consider evaluators who aren’t culturally competent so when they evaluate an educator who is, they do not see relevance in their instructional practices
Jonathan Feinstein
01:25:39
Wooo, appreciate your Dr. Gibbs
Darlene Perry
01:26:19
Thanks for being transparent Dr. Gibbs
Rick Vanosdall
01:29:32
YES! Dr. Gibbs, how does the “instrument” reflect Engaged Pedagogy? Is some of the bias “baked into” the TEAM instrument?
Shonka'an Saint-Fleur
01:32:29
If there is bias in the Talent Pipeline, that's a Title 6 violation.
Jonathan Feinstein
01:32:50
I just want to point out something that might not be popular with everyone: observational ratings may in fact be more biased than the value-added student outcomes
Aryana Bolourian
01:33:17
Thank you, Gini!
Eric Atkins
01:36:55
What should be in the next Elementary And Secondary Act reauthorization. The last reauthorization clumped together all minority students and was slanted in favor of school privatization
Shonka'an Saint-Fleur
01:39:20
Thank y'all so much! This was informative.
Eric Atkins
01:39:43
Evaluation was in the last ESEA plan as well as recruitment and retention of minority teachers
Eric Atkins
01:40:25
excuse me ESSA Plan
Jonathan Feinstein
01:40:54
Really like the push on district-level data and accountability
Jonathan Feinstein
01:50:28
Appreciate the acknowledgement
Jonathan Feinstein
01:51:03
And the need to name systemic discrimination
Dr. Diarese George
01:55:12
A lot of people are still talking about that leadership program and its impact in Knox County.
Jonathan Feinstein
01:55:26
Glad to hear about the growth of teacher residencies - so many teacher candidates aren’t provided the opportunity to develop practice-based skills prior to becoming teachers of record
Tanya T. Coats
01:55:31
Yes, we are Dr. George!
Jonathan Feinstein
01:59:57
What are the best-in-class anti-bias training and resources for this kind of observation calibration?
Jonathan Feinstein
02:00:37
Has any of this work intersected with the CLASS rubric?
Tanya T. Coats
02:03:58
Amen! Being Deliberate!
Jason Grissom
02:11:15
Any districts who might need help looking at their data in the way Laura noted should feel free to reach out to us at TERA
Regina Hopkins
02:11:30
Thank you all! I have to jump to another meeting. Stay safe and be well!
Rick Vanosdall
02:11:36
Data rich and under-resourced. Lack of time for administrators to be able to do the type of work that is important to disrupt the status quo.
Tanya T. Coats
02:11:49
Good to know! Good to know, Dr. Grissom
