This is has been a hectic year for teachers around New Jersey. We have all been dealing with many big changes around evaluation, student growth objectives, tenure reform, and the transition to a new state test, PARCC.
On February 5, 2014, the State Board of Education will be hearing from teachers around the state about how these issues have affected our the lives of our students and our profession/classroom practice. Our association president, Ryan McCarty, will be attending the state board of education meeting to express our concerns, but the state would also like to hear from ALL of us!
Below is a link that will enable you to communicate directly with board of ed. The more teachers we have respond, the better. Please provide as much specific and viable feedback as possible – we want our voices heard!
