Great Irony, Teachers: Microsoft CEO Responds to Production Woes

“‘I mean, look, ultimately progress is measured sort of through the eyes of our users,’ he told Forbes. ‘More than our investors or our P&L [profit and loss] or anything else, it’s through the eyes of our users,'” says Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, after Forbes questions Microsoft’s production downturn.

Yes, this would be Bill Gates’ company. And yes, Bill Gates would be the one who is constantly preaching about measuring teachers’ production by test scores. Too rich!

Dear Mr. Gates,

I mean, look, ultimately progress is measured sort of through the eyes of our students. More than politicians or our students’ standardized scores (value added or lost) or anything else, it’s through the eyes of our students.
