Because the privatization is going so well in Muskegon Heights (huge turnover, teachers lacking certification), Mosaica decided, “Hey! Let’s record everything going on in every classroom! Not to evaluate teachers. No, not for that.”
Why, then? Michigan Radio (the only media outlet offering quality MI education coverage) asked Mosaica’s VP/Superintendent, Alena Zachary-Ross:
“The purpose is, number one, for safety, and then with the model, sometimes there are conversations about behavior in the classroom or the educational plans.” (emphasis mine)
Not that classroom behavior or educational plans have anything to do with evaluating a teacher’s performance.
What a nightmare. But if it saves Muskegon Heights money, you’d better believe it’s coming soon to a district near you.
