1. "Accountability" & High-Stakes Testing are suffocating the U.S. teacher's creativity and professionalism with an Iron Fist.
2. Reject the negativity of "ACCOUNTABILITY!" Supplant it with the positivism of professional RESPONSIBILITY.
3. Create a responsible, supportive teacher evaluation system. It will energize a responsible teaching profession. They go hand-in-hand.
Think Handshakes, not Iron Fists!
