This is the post from Dr. Ravitch’s blog that inspired “Following Bill Gates DOWN the Microsoft Path = Bad Business.”
The kind of “measuring” of teachers he is talking about is the same type that led to his company’s downturn. I can’t help but wonder if he is invading our profession simply because he isn’t doing so well in his own right now.
See http://lisamyers.org/2013/02/16/following-bill-gates-down-the-microsoft-path-bad-business/ for a list of sources detailing Microsoft’s fall based on Gates’ appraisal system.
Is This What Bill Gates Means by Good Education?.
