I can only say that the one-size-fits all obsession with the DC-CAS scores will continue to drain experienced teachers away from poorer schools, because they just aren't willing to risk their careers by trying to serve those most in need instead of waiting for retirement at what the article describes as a "cream puff" school

Interesting article in the Post today. Two things caught my attention. One, is that the Post is unsure of why there are so many first and second year teachers in the meat-grinders that are the poorest schools, and that the Post can't really analyze data from DC because it's so messed up. Great.
