Evaluating education
COE math and statistics education professor Tim Jacobbe submitted an opinion column on the topic of “teaching for the test” vs. “teaching for understanding” that ran in the Gainesville Sun. Jacobbe’s column calls for readers to challenge Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart’s decision for the American Institutes for Research to develop teacher evaluations for the state at a cost of $220 million.
