LISTEN: The Toledo PAR

( Click here to download the podcast )

This podcast is a companion piece to our reporting for PBS NewsHour on the PAR system for evaluating teachers in Toledo, Ohio; the PBS piece is embedded above.

When Toledo Teacher’s Union President Dal Lawrence implemented PAR or Peer Assistance and Review in his school district, he was met with skepticism. Teachers evaluating one another? Having the power to recommend the dismissal of a peer? John Merrow brings us the story of the program’s rocky startup and how the union leader persevered to bring about this controversial change.
