Performance Evaluation of Educational Personnel. Fastback 135.
Thomas, M. Donald
This pamphlet makes a case for performance evaluation of educational personnel as the primary method for improving schools. The case is developed through commentary, examples, and statements of educators familiar with performance evaluation. The paper examines current issues related to the evaluation of educational personnel such as the purpose of evaluation, the relationship between evaluation and teacher unionism, evaluation and the negotiation process, evaluation as a basis for staff development, and the ability of educators to police themselves. A separate chapter is devoted to a discussion of six school districts in the country that have model performance evaluation programs. Final chapters deal with accountability, the evaluation conference, and termination of an employee. (Author/LD)
