I am appalled at the unprofessional and derogatory comments made by teachers on this thread. It is shameful and certainly a way to stop teachers from sharing and learning from one another. Data is a way to inform us of our progress, motivate us to focus our efforts and illuminate the areas that need additional attention. It certainly has a place in education and learning about how different teachers incorporate it should be a very interesting exchange. The negative comments posted here effectively stop learning and instead have made this a place for people to complain about what is wrong with education. Start your own negative thread and let those who want to share ideas and learn from one another do so without your soap boxing!
