This fall, schools chancellor Michelle Rhee rolled out IMPACT, a new system for evaluating Washington, DC public school teachers. Reactions in DC range from fear to excitement. IMPACT is designed to raise the level of instruction and student achievement, but some worry that it could be used to unfairly fire teachers.
Podcast producer Selly Thiam interviewed Jason Kamras, one of the architects of IMPACT and the Director of Human Capital Management for Washington, DC’s teachers about the evaluation system and how he thinks it is going to change teaching in Washington, DC.
