"Repugnant" is not strong enough. This guy is THE worst everything. WORST. How/why does MSNBC keep him on? He screams "foul" and "poor me" for an hour every night. And, for the record, I am as left as more »

ya know, if we were bucking-up to pick sides in a winners' out game of hoops, RONDO would not be the first guy picked. His head ain't with us. I'm not a shrink, but I'd guess that Rondo does not res more »

PUHLEEEZ --- The year is 2014, and the relics who post anti-Walsh, anti-gay have to face the truth: The " â¦ good old days" are over, long past. Hanging on to "what used to be/used to work" is a choi more »

Your ties to Stevenson are more obvious than you'd guess; he leaned hard right too and dreamed about a future day when his radio or tv might tell him how to think. JakeLNHyde --- so you're a Republica more »

Good one. And most principals are as "human" as are the teachers. Many of the principals are politicians or political appointees. Should they be allowed to evaluate a teacher's performance? Capice?
Posted 11/18/2013 08:20:34 EST
Mike, but there are a zillion factors that determine a school performance rating, make that ten zillion. Face it, Wellesley schools will rate higher than Dorchester's and Lexington schools will rate h more »

BAD/GOOD teachers: ya know, in many ways it's a lot like good/bad coffee, good/bad music, good/bad movies etc. HOW to rate the teachers is not an easy issue. Face it, for the most part your "bad" ones more »

sarcasm appreciated, but there are poor performers in every ---EVERY--- profession/line-of-work, aren't there? Public employees are too easy a target.
Posted 11/18/2013 07:27:25 EST
again, WHAT/WHO/HOW do we rate teachers' performance? It's too easy to give high ratings to teachers we like and vice-versa. AND if a supervisor dislikes a certain teacher --- watch out. Where are th more »
