Quote for the day: Any similarity to real-life teaching is purely coincidental

"Administrators and politicians don't like to hear that teaching is situational. They need to believe that standardized indicators of good teaching exist that can be proven to be reliable and valid across multiple contexts. I have spent my life in such systems and, while they may make the administrative task of assigning annual scores to a teacher's performance easier, any correlation they have with an accurate assessment of what actually goes on in a classroom is often purely coincidental." ~~ Stephen D. Brookfield, The Skillful Teacher
