Most teachers have felt a faster heart beat at one time or another when their principal enters the room to "observe them teach." Both know that an evaluation report will soon be written and distributed to the district office, eventually finding its way to the board of education. The report may even affect the employment status of the teacher. The reaction of the teacher would seem to indicate "mistrust" of the evaluation. In fact, since 1965, there has been a growing mistrust of evaluation. Why? Specifically, why do teachers mistrust evaluation to the degree that they avoid it in their teaching and professional careers as well?
