To the editor:

I understand that the Alaska Department of Education has proposed to add student performance data as a criteria in teachers’ annual evaluations. It sounds like another bad educational trend that hopes for a quick fix to a complex problem. Of course the fix won’t be quick, may not be fair, and likely will not even be effective in improving teaching or learning. I have a better idea; how about having teachers do evaluations of parents? Parents and administrators get to evaluate teachers, but no one evaluates parents’ job performance. Changes resulting from such evaluations might actually have an impact on student success.
