PRESS CONFERENCE: President of the American Federation of Teachers

Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers, came to the Office of Newark Teachers Union, its largest New Jersey affiliate, to push the AFT’s new approach to teacher evaluation and teacher tenure. At the heart of the proposal is that teachers evaluate their fellow teachers through peer review and that a three-step process be involved: evaluate, improve and remove. Under performing teachers would be given one year to improve or else be counseled out of the profession or given a quick tenure hearing.
