S3 Episode 7: Testing, Evaluations, and Budgets (Oh My!)
In education, the words “testing, evaluations, and budgets” might cause you to shudder. Fortunately, Chris Kotterman schools us on what each looks like in the context of Arizona’s K-12 education system. Listen, as our hosts, Angelia and Donnie, reflect on their experiences with teacher evaluations and discuss current events at the Legislature. In his own words, the Director of Governmental Relations for the Arizona School Boards Association says, “K-12 education is full of unique and caring individuals… K-12 education has been run over many times by other people’s priorities over the past decade. They can’t ignore schools anymore. Teachers have made that impossible.” Please note: This episode was recorded prior to the events on April 25 and May 1.
