City school superintendents: Adopt James Comer's strategy to get more effective teachers

This petition had 45 supporters


In a recent "manifesto," Joel Klein, Michelle Rhee, Ron Huberman, and other city superintendents said that the way to get the best teachers is twofold: Good teaching is not linked to experience, any novice can be a good teacher. And, that the road to better teaching is by using technology better in the classroom. James Comer's idea, which is well-researched and implemented in districts across the county, is to train teachers to address the social-emotional-cognitive skills of their students. This approach not only meets the needs of students, but also has been shown to raise test scores.
