Developing great teachers and leaders is a key mandate of the U.S. government’s Race to the Top program. This stimulus program rewards States that have demonstrated success in raising student achievement and have the best plans to accelerate their reforms in the future.
Improving teacher and principal effectiveness using a pay for performance evaluation model is one program criteria garnering fierce debate among educators.
However, research from noted expert, author and professor Dr. James Stronge indicates there is some validity in connecting teacher effectiveness and student achievement.
On December 8th, Halogen has asked Dr. James Stronge to present his research findings demonstrating this connection and how to evaluate teachers using student achievement as one measure of effectiveness.
We invite you to attend this complimentary one-hour webinar to learn more about Dr. Stronge’s findings and how it may support your institution’s efforts to improve teacher effectiveness, selection and evaluation.
