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.
