I disagree that teacher evaluations should be shared only with parents (presumably parents of their own students).
What about parents of children not yet in the school? What about non-parents, but especially administrators of other schools/districts which may consider hiring a teacher from another school or district? What about other teachers in the same school or district who feel they have been mistreated in the evaluation process?
If parents get to see evaluations with teacher names, then why not allow parents to participate in the teacher evaluation process?
Parents will be allowed to divulge teacher evaluations, rendering this privacy notion void. Parents could conceivably make a compendium of all teacher evaluations in a school or entire district, and publish it. Heck, an enterprising parent-teacher organization could decide that the “official” APPR evaluations under Principal Joe Doakes over in Yoknapatawpha High School are all much too rosy, and all the APPR evaluations under Principal Ulysses in Yoknapatawpha at the middle school are all too severely critical and nit-picking.
Deciding then that the entire APPR evaluation process is bogus, the disillusioned PTO could undertake to do (and publish) their OWN teacher evaluations, completely outside of the purview of the school or district administration!
Actually, I believe teachers and their evaluations should be treated just as I am treated, and as is my annual work evaluation. Nobody other than me, my boss and the HR Department gets to see them. Making individual teacher evaluations available to anyone other than school district officials, in my opinion, is somewhere between draconian and foolhardy. I believe this newly adopted law will prove to be the undoing of any effectiveness anyone may have expected to have resulted from the APPR teacher evaluation process.
For the purposes of full disclosure, I am personally against the entire APPR teacher evaluation concept as being unnecessary and expensive as well as totally unproductive. Time will tell!
