Exploring Race & Gender in Teacher Observation Scores

The Education Trust in Tennessee, The Tennessee Educators of Color Alliance, and the Tennessee Education Association invite you to a webinar to learn about new research by the Tennessee Education Research Alliance (TERA) at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College that reveals that Black and male teachers in Tennessee have received lower observation scores than White and female teachers every year since the state’s evaluation system began in 2011. Even when comparing similarly qualified teachers who perform the same according to other metrics, such as their value-added to student achievement, gaps among race and gender remain.

Dr. Jason Grissom, Patricia and Rodes Hart Professor of Public Policy and Education at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College and TERA’s faculty director, will present their findings, which will be followed by discussion of the implications of the report and possible policy and practice solutions with a diverse panel of experts.  

Educators, administrators and education advocates are encouraged to attend.
