New Haven, Connecticut -The Connecticut Council for Education Reform (CCER) released the following statement today, from executive director Jeffery Villar, in response to the GOP's calling for public hearings on the implementation of Common Core:
"Transformative change is difficult," said Jeffrey Villar, executive director of CCER and former superintendent of a district that successfully piloted the SEED model.
Jeffrey Villar, CCER's executive director, said the organization's primary priority is to protect the education reforms passed through legislation in 2012 and 2013.
"The key to a more prosperous future for our state is providing every single child with a world-class education," Villar said.
New Haven, Conn-With yesterday's release by the Neag School of Education of its report on the pilot implementation of SEED-CCER's executive director, Jeffrey Villar, reflected on his experience leading one of the districts that piloted the program. "I was pleased that Neag's study shows the Connecticut System for Educator Evaluation and Development (SEED) to be making positive changes in practice amongst teachers and administrators," said Villar.
"When we were piloting the program in my district," Villar reported, "it was very clear that we need to be providing administrators with more time and training on how to provide actionable feedback to their teachers. Like any complex system, it has to be implemented properly if it is going to be a success. I am excited that the pilot was a success, and CCER looks forward to supporting districts as they continue to implement this program".
Dr. Villar has spent almost two decades within Connecticut's public education system, and he now heads up CCER, working to reform the educational system so that every child receives an exceptional education, without exception.
"Our mission is to close the achievement gap while raising academic outcomes for all public school students in Connecticut," said Jeffrey Villar, executive director of CCER.
"We aren't ceasing to advocate for the same policies," cautioned Villar. "We are merely pursuing them through an additional avenue. Now, our organization will be protecting them at the state-level, while simultaneously advancing them at the district-level."

Jeffrey Villar, a former Windsor school superintendent, who now heads the Connecticut Council for Education Reform, said he knows first hand the challenges the new evaluation has presented.

But he remains committed to the idea that teachers have a critical impact upon student learning and that there must be a connection between student learning and teacher evaluation.
"To call for a complete disconnect eliminates accountability," Villar said.
Rather than holding press conferences, Villar said CEA members should be addressing their concerns with the statewide committee that developed the standards.

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.
