Half day - early start to the weekend

Only a half school day today.

The teachers are not so lucky. They have a professional day to work on the new evaluation process coming to MA school districts. A report in the Boston Globe today bemoans the fact that 92% of the teachers were rated proficient or exemplary. I didn't get to the full set of statistics but it could be a fair reflection of reality if 9-10 percent are 'exemplary'. But the media only like to highlight the bad news and by structuring the headline to combine categories, it implies that most are exemplary. Enough ranting. Too early in the morning for that. Especially ahead of a nice long weekend!
