How much of an effect will NCTQ ratings have in hiring practices?

Looking into the report today and found this quote at the top of the new NCTQ website:

"Teachers deserve better support and better training than teachers’ colleges today provide, and school districts should be able to make well-informed hiring choices." — Arne Duncan

It makes me nervous that a study that was done without in- classroom observation and with so many holes could have a negative impact on future teachers looking for jobs.

    I hadn’t thought about that but when you put it in that context, holy shit.
