Throughout the fall, in planning workshops, school visits, and meetings, and through your survey responses, we have heard a great deal about how professional learning is done and what educators in BPS think it should become.

During the last week of November, the BTU polled our readers on the matter of performance evaluation, its reported bias, and the school district's obligation to explain some of the reported disparities.On the first issue, whether or not bias exists, more than 500 people responded, 66% of whom believe the current performance system to be unfair and biased. On the second issue, more than 88% of the 400 who took the poll think the the school district owes us an explanation.
