One of the challenges to the education reform movement is creating a more effective way to evaluate teachers. Ten school districts in New Jersey have been selected to be pilot districts to implement new ways to evaluate their teaching staff.
At 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 17, join Ray Pinney, host of the Conversations on New Jersey Education online radio program, as he speaks with Dr. Michael Kuchar, superintendent of the Bergenfield School District, about why his district chose to participate – and their experiences so far. His district’s experience, along with the other pilot districts, will have a profound impact on how the state proceeds with teacher evaluations in the future.
About the Program Conversations on New Jersey Education, NJSBA’s program over BlogTalkRadio.com, is similar to a live radio talk show, except it is broadcast through the Internet. The 45-minute shows air live, but recordings are also available to download later to iPods or MP3 devices, or to listen to “on demand” via a computer online.
Listeners only need a computer with high speed Internet access. To hear the live show or past recorded broadcasts, visit NJSBA’s BlogTalk Radio web page.
