Re: Houston's Public School Board mulls idea of firing teachers whose student's show no improvement.

I recall the commercial where everyone took credit when the student excelled and gave none to the teacher, but all pointed a finger at the teacher when the student failed. Teachers are only one part of a students' success or failure. The school district, the parents, and the laws and regulations teachers must follow all add into the equation. Sandardized test may be good for tracking students' progress, but should not be used for evaluating teachers.
