D.C. mayor: Teacher-evaluation system is unfair

I had an interview last Friday and I pretty much was able to share my thoughts and experiences about the IMPACT. One of the essential questions that bothers me is: why was this implemented without a pilot?
Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent C. Gray says the district's current teacher evaluation system -- known as IMPACT -- is an improvement from its predecessor, but he admits it is an unfair measure of teacher effectiveness. Gray said his primary concern is that the system doesn't factor in differences in student populations at individual schools and it could encourage "teachers to teach in one part of the city and not in the other parts."
