New Challenges For Painless Methods

Did ending teacher professional services contracts help Florida students’ academic achievement? Donna Kellogg, (second from left holding sign and talking on cell phone) a special needs teacher with the Hillsborough County School District, was among hundreds of faculty, staff, and parents who lined both sides of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. bridge over the Hillsborough River Wednesday (04/07/2010) afternoon to protest Senate Bill 6, currently being considered in the state legislature in Tallahassee.

CODDINGTON | Times] Florida lawmakers first proposed doing away with teacher "tenure" in 2010, making it happen in 2011 despite strong teacher opposition. One of their arguments: Making it easier to get rid of low-performing teachers could lead to higher student academic results.

The paper, by researchers Celeste Carruthers, David Figlio and Tim Sass, states that "students in the most vulnerable schools show gains that compared favorably to students in the least vulnerable schools, but by a very small degree." Even then, the authors write, that outcome needs to be viewed with "substantial caution." Other factors could have played a role, they observe. "Note also that we examine just one likely outcome of tenure reform," they continue. "Returning to the language of the statute, the intent was to raise student achievement by improving the quality of instructional, administrative, and supervisory services in the public schools.

Indeed, the writers find, the answer to whether the initiative succeeded might ultimately be political.
