teach, test, and hope for the best

Richard DuFour:
”Typically, teachers teach, test, and hope for the best. [Adlai] Stevenson [High School] teachers established standards of mastery for...common assessments and for each subtest within a common assessment. They set a bar for student performance and then worked to ensure that each student could make it over that bar.”

Are you going to post about the Harvard study on "high value added teachers" and how they impact students future earnings?

Forgive me if you've already posted this. If you have, I must have missed it.
