Still Waiting on VAM

As of October 15, teachers in Florida have yet to receive their Value Added Model (VAM) results  from the 2011-2012 school year. This is the portion of the new teacher evaluation system that will be based on standardized test scores, accounting for up to 50 percent of the final score. The very people who decry government bureaucracy and government inefficiency have turned a two page evaluation system that provided immediate results into a multiple page system that is cumbersome to complete and a value-added system that keeps teachers waiting well into the next school year for results.
