Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

What does a good teacher do?

In revising its teaching standards (technically, the "Florida Educator Accomplished Practices"), the state is asking that question, an appointed teachers task force has just offered up a slim, first draft of an answer, and you teachers and parents out there are being asked for input.

The FEAPs are the basis for Florida's teacher prep programs. And according to the Florida Department of Education Web site, the revisions will "establish the core practices for teacher appraisal systems under the state's Race to the Top plan."

So, yawn at your peril.

You can comment here. The comment period ends June 12. A second draft expected in July.
