In a recent commentary piece, Jeffrey Villar, Executive Director of the Connecticut Council for Education Reform, praises the Connecticut State Board of Education's support for using student SBAC results in teacher evaluations. He claims, "The absence of such objective data has left our evaluation system light on accountability. He further contends, "Connecticut continues to have one of the worst achievement gaps in the nation, the SBE appears committed to continuing to take this issue on."
Contrary to Mr. Villar's assertion, there is little, if any, evidence to support the idea that including standardized test scores in teacher evaluations will close the so-called achievement gap.
In some ways, it is a solution looking for a problem. Mr. Villar writes, "recently released evaluation results rated almost all Connecticut teachers as either proficient or exemplary.

Jeffrey Villar, executive director of Connecticut Council for Education Reform, hopes to see legislation passed to enable a teacher certified in Massachusetts or New York to get a job in Connecticut without having to retake the state's tests or get another state certificate.

Other Northeastern states have such reciprocity agreements, Villar said, and he thinks it would be helpful, particularly for increasing the number of teachers in areas such as bilingual education.
In addition, Villar said, CCER would like to see legislation that provides incentives - perhaps loan forgiveness arrangements - to attract and retain good teachers in struggling school districts.
