Re: “Berkeley's Unequal Punishment of Teachers

The purpose of PAR is and always has been "to reduce the cost of dismissing tenured teachers, which can otherwise be very expensive." It is a CYA for bully principals to use teachers to take out other teachers. It is NOT about helping teachers or children. I was a PAR "coach" for one year. I was very naive when I signed up to do it. I thought I would take a break from the classroom, get a little extra money and help teachers. It became very clear that we were not there to help. We were there to do the dirty work for the district and cover them from any future lawsuits. It looks better for them if a teacher gets rid of another teacher then for a principal to do it. If the principal does it, then that principal could become scrutinized and they don't want that. This whole program me is a scam. I don't know why anyone would go into teaching nowadays. When I started many years ago it was a vocation. Now it is people jockeying for power and control and it is just a political mess. Stay away from teaching an stay away from people who are affiliated with PAR.
