Peer Review?

Eduwonk got me again!  I recently saw this post on teacher peer review.  In Toledo, teachers are evaluating each other, instead of principals.  What?  Maybe I am just very ready for Thanksgiving break, but seriously?  Teachers already have a full time job – they teach and manage a classroom.  Administrators also have a full time job – they manage the teachers and school processes.  Let’s not add yet another responsibility to our already overworked teachers.  Maybe if administrators did their job in the first place and hired quality professionals, they wouldn’t find themselves in this predicament to begin with.  And here is one more thought… a school where teachers are constantly thinking about being reviewed by their peers is not a school that fosters professionalism and a collaborative working environment.
