48. You are welcome.

I am in PA which implemented Danielson state-wide this school year. It is a total nightmare.

Yes, they do seem to be targeting veteran teachers for "improvement plans." I do believe it is a systematic program to get rid of veteran teachers and hire more newbies who can be shaped to fit the mold.

Besides that, the evaluation process is extremely time-consuming. That is time that could be much better spent planning meaningful lessons which actually benefit students. It is maddening!

Sadly, I don't think parents have a clue as to what is actually going on.
