Merit Pay, Ready or Not

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership Diane Ravitch, whom I follow closely on Twitter and who blogs regularly at EdWeek's Bridging Differences, regularly comments on the role of Race to the Top and related legislation on the state of teacher compensation.

In Defense of Incremental Change

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership If you can bring about rapid, radical change to accomplish something important, go ahead - why not? We need bold experimentation and exploration.

Lessons on Performance from the Hospital

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership We had a surprise on Saturday - our baby girl arrived nearly 5 weeks early and was breech, so we had to have an emergency C-section.

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership Yesterday I spent the day at another elementary school in my district as part of our district's Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) for principals.

Bringing the 4 Rs to Teacher & Principal Evaluation

Seattle Principal Justin Baeder argues that the teacher and principal evaluation process doesn't have to be perfunctory, and is more productive when it focuses on rigor, relevance, relationships, and results.

How to (Let Someone Else) Fix Our Schools

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership In an op-ed in the Washington Post today, a bevy of urban superintendents (including Klein, Rhee, and Huberman of NYC, DC, and Chicago, respectively) offer their manifesto on "How to Fix Our Schools." Puzzlingly, rather than celebrate their accomplishments and bo...

Principal Accountability, Multiple Measures, and Campbell's Law

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership In his recent post on Reality Check, Walt Gardner rightly points out that accountability for teachers must be matched or exceeded by accountability for principals: Unless principals are blatantly incompetent, they tend to remain in their jobs. Nevertheless, princip...

The Performance Manifesto

by Justin Baeder | @eduleadership We have long believed that there is a link between school leadership and student performance; many studies (such as those conducted by Kenneth Leithwood) have explored this relationship and have found principals to be second only to teachers in their impact on stud...
