Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Much of today's rhetoric for stemming the "rising tide of mediocrity" in American education has focused on the unsatisfactory performance of America's teachers (Sweeney and Manatt, 1984). Yet, too often the efforts of the nation's very able teachers are overshadowed by the poor performances of a relatively small number of incompetent classroom teachers. The accomplishments of the competent majority will continue to be overlooked and unappreciated unless principals deal directly with unsatisfactory teachers (Bridges, 1985). What we need is a reliable and accurate method for identifying teachers who are not performing up to standard and a systematic process for helping them improve (Sweeney and Manatt, 1984).
