As reported, Dundalk's principal left the details to the teachers and even said, "There is no formula for this." Much of the discussion of educational reform deliberately excludes teachers. There is a negative characterization of teachers prompting the fallacious need to hold teachers accountable, as if we were not already. There is also a formulaic approach to delineating a good school and an effective teacher. There is even an attempt to measure the added value of each teacher. Not only does this narrow the perspective of a teacher's value, it also diminishes the student to an inhuman product. Yet as this article clearly articulates, empowering teachers goes a long way toward improving our schools, and our value is immeasurable.
