From the Rochester Hearings on REPA

Rochester Public Hearing

Several of IACTE members were in attendance.  I counted 11 institutions represented.  There were approximately 200 individuals in attendance, and 84 individuals signed up to make comments.  All stakeholders were well represented.  The most prominent themes to the comments that I noted included:

      Opposition to principals being in the position to signoff/approve professional growth plans and teachers’ re-licensure.

      Calls to slow down the process and initiate a collaborative process including representatives of all stakeholders for the review of rules

      Opposition to limits on pedagogy, including field experiences
