A group of former activists with Stand for Children have endorsed an open letter calling on Stand for Children to withdraw their ballot initiative.
The group, which includes parents and school committee members from across Massachusetts, wrote:
The proposed ballot measure attempts to blow up the collaborative work that created the new regulations last spring. It does nothing to improve teaching in our schools. What it does is put the careers of our teachers at the mercy of an untested rating system, violating the recommendations of the people who designed that system.
We fear the result would be to drive some of our best teachers away from the schools that need them most.
