Class Composition and Evaluations

As we have always said, and it says it in our contract, class composition should be taken into account when evaluating a teachers.  What this study says is that evaluators do take it into account, but opposite to what we want.  If you have a difficult class, EL, RSP, KNOWN discipline problems, it states that the teachers are marked DOWN.  If you have a GATE, AP, High Achievers classroom, the teachers are marked higher.  Read the blog and see.  What do you think?  Do principals hold it against us?
