Brooklyn College's School of Education has begun to base evaluations of aspiring teachers in part on their commitment to social justice, raising fears that the college is screening students for their political views.
The School of Education at the CUNY campus initiated last fall a new method of judging teacher candidates based on their "dispositions," a vogue in teacher training across the country that focuses on evaluating teachers' values, apart from their classroom performance.
"Well, this science teacher failed the science test. Seems he's not fit..." Oh, no no, he can still teach because he's such a saint*. "Okay, we'll keep him." So, now kids in Brooklyn will have supposedly well-meaning, but still, incompetent teachers.
* Whatever that means is defined by the administration.
