Numerous school districts in North Texas claim they are resisting the new accountability rating system being implemented by the Texas Education Agency.

What Happened?

The usefulness of publicly disclosing a school’s A–F grades has been thoroughly researched, TEA Commissioner Mike Morath, the keynote speaker at the Dallas Regional Chamber’s annual State of Public Education event, told guests on Tuesday.

He claimed that having high expectations in the accountability system led to kids earning more money in their thirties.It is demanding labour. Although nothing about this is simple, it is the most crucial labour we perform.

Superintendents from the Dallas, Plano, and Cedar Hill ISDs expressed their unhappiness and disapproval of the most recent modifications during a panel discussion.

Cedar Hill ISD Superintendent Dr. Gerald Hudson said, “We have school districts who are working extremely hard, teachers who are working extremely hard, and doing amazing things, but you can have double-digit gains and based upon the way the current systems is supposed to fall out, you can actually lose a letter grade.”

Currently, Morath is being sued by a number of North Texas school districts, including the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Prosper ISDs. They describe what took place as a breach of state law. Dr. Holly Ferguson, superintendent of Prosper ISD, stated that this is for the class of 2022.

A Fair Process

“There has to be a transparent and fair process, and today, six weeks into the next school year, school districts, schools, and teachers still don’t know how they’ll be held accountable,” Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Dr. Angélica Ramsey said.

In the future, some predict that this will lower morale and, if unresolved, could be the tipping point for instructors. According to what we hear from our teachers, it’s demoralising, according to Plano ISD Superintendent Dr. Theresa Williams.

Elizalde warned, “That could result in such discouragement that you just say I’m leaving.” Ferguson remarked, “It’s simply… it’s not right.

We asked Morath for an interview after the incident on Tuesday to obtain his take on these particular issues, but he was informed he had to leave straight away.
