How do you test a teacher's performance? Not by seeing if his students have learned anything, obviously.


Well, no you don't.

My sister, for example, teaches at an inner city school where over 90% of the kids don't speak English as a first language and a fair portion arrive barely speaking English at all. Most of them come from broken homes, their parents are often in prison and they get little or no support from home. She often has to pay for their breakfast. Surprisingly enough, their SATs results are rarely particularly good - just a good site better than they might be without her in[put.

She could, if she so desired, teach in a nice middle-class school in leafy suburbia where her pupils (with supportive parents and additional private tuition) would sail through the SATs blindfold.

In what way would that unchallenging environment make her a better teacher?
