Lipstick on a Pig
This is a worksheet that I created to help my HR director and lead bargainer as the three of us try to write contractual language to implement the new evaluation system. According to the legislature and to prevailing views throughout the country, this is what good teaching looks like.
WEA's legislative priority this session is to secure full funding and full implementation of this view of teaching.
Yes, WEA has succeeded in (perhaps) blunting the worst of this odious and onerous approach, but putting lipstick on a pig and calling it Beyoncé doesn't change the fact one iota that it's still a pig.
