Testing glitches aside, Stewart is praised for stabilizing Florida's education system

This is SOOOO typical of the BS under Rick Scott....
Why should teachers be evaluated by test scores - while the commissioner is evaluated by "work ethic and desire to do right by kids" even though the entire testing program, charter program, and certification program are a mess!?!?

How about letting teacher write a self evaluation followed by praise for their "efforts" and "doing right by kids"!!
How about letting the teachers rate the commissioner (the week after the screwed up testing program would be a good time).
Hell, I'd like to give the commissioner a test on the 350 page self report to see how much they read!!

I could just spit.

------------------------------

Pam Stewart, the longest serving of four education commissioners during Florida Gov. Rick Scott's five-year tenure, received a solid performance review Wednesday from her formal bosses on the State Board of Education.

"I've admired her work ethic and her desire to do right by kids," chairman Gary Chartrand said.

Stewart, who last week gave the board a 350-page self evaluation, did not make any comments during the brief conversation except to thank board members for their support. In the document, she said she had achieved her goals, successfully advocated for improvements to the system and worked to boost student performance. She made note of the recent testing problems, but said they were not a major issue.
