Check out this broadcast of WFAE’s “Charlotte Talks,” which discusses upcoming funding challenges in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools but along the way gives some insight into the “audit culture” as it looks in school right now. I only heard the first 15 min live but imagine the rest of the hour is also time well-spent.
What most got my attention was the amount of data being gathered as part of teacher performance review – the form so long the reporter thought she was being handed a whole stack of them.
