Value-Added Models of Teacher and School Effectiveness in Ireland: Wise or Otherwise?
Sloane, Finbarr C.; Oloff-Lewis, Jennifer; Kim, Seong Hee
Irish Educational Studies, v32 n1 p37-67 2013
The government of Ireland, like many European countries, is currently under severe pressure from external forces to grow the economy. One possible way to maintain and grow its economy is through the production of a highly educated and globally competitive workforce. In an effort to develop such a workforce, the government, through the Department of Education, is considering ways to increase accountability in its schools. This paper examines value-added accountability systems used in the USA and raises critical questions about their perceived value for Irish schools. (Contains 5 tables and 6 figures.)
