Edwatch: Educators 4 Excellence
|Organization Name:||Educators 4 Excellence|
|Company Line:||Educators 4 Excellence works to ensure that the voices of classroom teachers are included in the decisions that affect our profession and our students. E4E envisions an elevated, prestigious teaching profession in which educators are leaders both in and outside of their classrooms to drive positive outcomes for students.|
|Bottom Line:||Educators for Excellence is two years old. In its first year, it had grants and contributions of $339,031.00. That’s pretty amazing for a start-up founded by a couple of ex-teachers.
In 2011 E4E had receipts of $1,926,028. About one-quarter of the total came from the Gates Foundation. Many, if not most members, have Teach for America roots with an agenda that runs contrary to that of experienced professionals. Members constitute a group of know-it-alls who know nothing about education.

A ridiculous commentary from someone who doesn't understand what teacher evaluation means. If she truly wants to become a better teacher, she will find an experienced mentor, take relevant education classes, and engage in professional development that enhances pertinent knowledge and skills that will benefit children -- not seminars that focus on higher test scores.
