Chicago Public Schools principals can hire teachers even if they failed controversial survey
from Chicago Tribune
Chicago Public Schools principals are no longer prohibited from hiring teachers who scored low on a preapplication screening, CEO Jean-Claude Brizard told them, a day after officials had defended the process. The 100-plus-question survey was designed to bring the best teachers to the classroom, said CPS Chief Human Capital Officer Alicia Winckler. But applicants and union officials complained that the questions were subjective and that the multiple-choice format didn't allow them to fully answer questions. Principals said they were barred from hiring applicants who scored low on the test.
