Grading schools and teachers

In this week’s issue, longtime Alibi contributor and State Sen. Jerry Ortiz y Pino, wrote about the great teacher debate rampaging across the country. How do we improve our schools?

Some folks—like New Mexico’s public education secretary, Hanna Skandera—want to tie teacher evaluations to student test scores. This is being explored in various school districts nationwide. In some cases, teacher pay is determined by how well students do on standardized tests.

The details of how this would work in New Mexico haven’t yet been unveiled. But Ortiz y Pino predicts we’ll hear more about it during the legislative session, scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

In the meantime, the state graded all our schools. It’s not looking good. There are more Fs than As:

A: 73

B: 191

C: 266

D: 208

F: 89
