2010-11 Supplemental Educational Services (SES) Provider Performance Report Read this report and see for yourself.
Before DSEA signs on the dotted line on teacher accountability perhaps they should demand same accountability for SES providers or have those students testing scores failed by the SES factor out of the classroom teachers evaluation or give so credit back. SES are being sold as the save-all picking up the pieces where the classroom teacher failed (not really). Put it this way, it’s like one dentist sending his patient to a specialist and that specialist pulled the wrong tooth. SES are failing in Delaware and not being held accountable and keep operating under the protection of the United States Department of Education. Arne Duncan and Jack Markell turns a blind-eye to the failures of SES providers.
Also look at Red Clay’s SES scores! Tell me this, how in the hell can a school district be their own SES provider for student that they “apparently” failed”? Do you see other Delaware school districts listed as an SES provider? Who knows perhaps it was part of the Race to The Top Limo Deal !
Kilroy’s additional comments 05/15/2012; Don’t you think all tutors being paid with NCLB SES dollars should be state certified teachers and highly qualified in subject matter they teach?
DSEA and all union and non-union teachers need to take a stand and demand SES providers be held accountable to the same standards as they are. Honestly, just go to the above link and look at Delaware’s SES performance report. Delaware classroom teachers will be held accountable to even the failures of the SES providers.
