We have done an extensive study of The Toledo Plan and feel that it should be abolished as it is supposed to rid the school system of “bad” veteran teachers through evaluation, instead it is being used to rid the school system of first year teachers through peer mentoring. Its target, primarily, is the non traditional first year teacher.

Vasquez: New TPS Board Member

So why did the board take time to do interviews ? Its seems they had their person pre-picked , and they sure don't listen to the voters' selection. I emailed all the board members, and didn't get the courtesy of even a reply from any of them.
