STANDARDS AND ASSESSMENTS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Do you oppose or support the Obama administration’s priority of adopting internationally benchmarked standards and assessments that prepare students for success in college and the workplace?


STANDARDS AND ASSESSMENTS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Should students who graduate from high school have the credits to apply to one of Washington’s publically funded four year universities?

DHM |7


STANDARDS AND ASSESSMENTS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Do you oppose or support raising high school graduation to 24 credits so that all high school graduates have the option of applying to college?


DATA SYSTEMS TO SUPPORT INSTRUCTION Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Do you oppose or support the Obama administration’s priority of building data systems that measure growth in student success and inform teachers and principals how they can improve their practices?


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Do you oppose or support the Obama administration’s priority of recruiting, developing, retaining, and rewarding effective teachers and leaders?


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

We need a fair way to differentiate teacher and principal effectiveness based on performance.


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Teacher effectiveness should be the predominant factor when making staffing decisions, such as placement, transfers, and reduction in force. That means seniority and other factors would be secondary considerations.


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Reform teacher compensation, including higher starting teacher pay, paying more to teachers for increased responsibility, growth in student achievement, and teaching in shortage subject areas like math, science, and special education.


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

(split sample) Do you oppose or support extending the probationary period of teachers to five years and allowing principals to grant, deny, or extend contracts based on evaluations?


GREAT TEACHERS AND LEADERS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Teachers should have access to multiple career pathways including increased compensation, instead of just receiving stipends or bonuses for taking on increased responsibility.


TURNING AROUND LOWEST ACHIEVING SCHOOLS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Do you oppose or support the Obama administration’s priority of turning around the lowest performing schools?


TURNING AROUND LOWEST ACHIEVING SCHOOLS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

(split sample) We need a comprehensive system of school improvement that includes voluntary and required actions for schools that chronically underperform year after year.


TURNING AROUND LOWEST ACHIEVING SCHOOLS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Low performing schools should have more flexibility in their ability to hire teachers.


TURNING AROUND LOWEST ACHIEVING SCHOOLS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Effective teachers who teach in high poverty schools should be paid more than other teachers.


TURNING AROUND LOWEST ACHIEVING SCHOOLS Advocating for Public Education In Washington

Incentives for teachers to teach in high poverty or troubled schools.
