Gunn Oracle Rejects Teacher Advisor System
Original post made by Listen to the children, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Nov 5, 2012
"Adoption of a Teacher Advisory system is not what The Oracle staff had in mind when the consultant survey showed a satisfaction discrepancy in guidance service quality compared to Paly. Instead, the emphasis lies in revamping both systems accordingly, and providing comparable services not necessarily by exchanging 'best' practices, but by defining a metric that both schools will reach."
If Gunn students don't want TA, why has Ken Dauber made "TA at Gunn" one of his key campaign platforms?
