My grandmother was a contracted educational advisor for the city of Providence about 3 years ago. She made a comprehensive plan that would allow Providence to properly evaluate the schools beyond just basic test scoring and finding metrics on the needs of individual students and teachers, and properly evaluating teacher performance. This plan would have been low cost and cause the firing of very few teachers, just the ones that really need to be. This would also be directly sent to the state and distributed to every other district. The Providence school district reviewed it and gave back incredible reviews saying it was nearly perfect and even the teacher’s union was ok with it. But after all that, that they wouldn’t be moving forward with it. Why? Well because they don’t really feel like it. Kids are graduating, so why make any changes?
