In the Teach Plus survey, published in October 2012, more than half of teachers surveyed with fewer than 11 years in teaching agree with these themes:
1. student growth data should be part of teacher evaluation
2. student growth data should be 20% or more of teacher evaluation
3. changing compensation and tenure system for higher salaries
A majority of teachers with 11 or more years experience disagreed with these themes. They did, however, agree with the importance of licensure tests to screen for necessary teaching skills.
It seems to me that the more-tenured teachers need to get on on-board with their less-experienced counterparts. It would be interesting to know the degree to which teacher preparation programs and unions influence these perceptions.
