Last week a state district court judge threw out a wrong-headed challenge to the new state teacher evaluations that finally put student achievement front and center. It was the second such loss by opponents in as many years. The Supreme Court rejected a similar challenge last year.
Can we move forward now and try to make this system better through discussion and cooperation instead of a fight to stop it at all costs? For the kids? The kids who are languishing at the bottom of important national student achievement rankings?
