A Farewell

When I started this blog two years ago, I set out to learn what performance means in education. I've focused on teacher and principal evaluation, on international comparisons, and on a host of other issues that have come up along the way. I've only scratched the surface of performance issues in education, but I've learned a great deal and hopefully shared a few insights of value.

I've greatly enjoyed engaging with readers through email and comments, and I hope to stay in touch one way or another. However, this post will be my last at On Performance.

My true passion in education is principal performance and productivity, which I write about at Eduleadership.org, the blog I've maintained since I started my journey as an educational leader in 2006. Since starting On Performance, my writing at Eduleadership has suffered, and I have realized that I need to focus more on Eduleadership. While I am interested in and concerned about teacher evaluation and the other issues I've written about here, my professional and scholarly work centers on principal performance and productivity, so that's where my writing must also focus.

For more on performance in K-12 education, check out Marc Tucker's great Top Performers blog or Tom Vander Ark On Innovation.
