New York, NY -- February 11, 2010 -- The President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, in a speech delivered in Washington, says she will urge her members to accept student achievement as an integral -- not only -- part of teacher evaluation.  Weingarten says she wants to "stop the notion" that her Union is in favor of keeping bad teachers in the classroom.

         That statement -- not yet policy by any means -- at a minimum, is a big step forward in moving the education industry toward the business model of any other industry.

         Use of student achievement for education is no different than use of productivity as a gauge for evaluation of any other worker in America.  BTW, we exclude politicians.
