The RI Department of Education wants to use Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) to determine teacher effectiveness, but their SLO process is flawed. As it stands, the SLO component of teacher evaluations is unproven, inappropriate for judging teacher effectiveness and not yet ready for such high stakes. We are calling for the suspension and re-examination of the SLO process. We need to focus on fair, reliable evaluations that will provide teachers with the meaningful feedback they need. Our administrators, teachers, and students deserve better.
