Where doparentsgettheirinfoabout schools?MostlyotherparentsIfyouwanttoknow
about a school, ask the students. We should think about having a student involved in
theadmissionsprocess.

Needisaterriblereasonfordecisionmaking.

ASCD glossy books not worth the paper they are written on. Teach Like a Champion was
disparagedbyCraigbecauseitisnotbasedonresearch.

DayTwoWhatconstitutesadecision?

The Value Added statistics of a teacher do not always match up with principal perceptions. At
times the VA high teachers may not get high marks from the students or they may be lone
wolves or going in a different direction than the rest of the department. Study by Harris and
Engels?

Craig proposed the idea of having actors yell profanitiesinthehallwaysoteachers canpractice


howtoreact.Ididthesameasbeingtheunreasonable,consumerdriven,privilegedparent.

Whatconstitutesdata?

ex) Story of the paint cans outside the school in Charlottesville, VA on the anniversaryof9/11.
What they thought to be IED bombs, turned out to be anartprojectofpinholecameras.Twoof
thehijackerson9/11gotdriver'slicensesfromthatcity.

Databaseddecisionmakinggoesbeyondtestscoresbeinganalyzed.

Students with lower GPA, lower SAT go into teaching, does this correlate to bad teachers?No
evidence

Education is different from other fields regarding the sought after positions. In the military,
people want to get into special forces because it is themostdifficult,mostchallengingposition.
In medicine, people want to work at Mayo Clinic because of the challenge. In law, togettothe
supreme court. In education, people dont strive to work in Detroit, Philadelphia,
Allentown,etc.
