Excerpt: James McIntyre, Knox County Schools, Tennessee
Knox County Schools Superintendent James McIntyre participates on the panel "The TAP System: Advancing Educator Effectiveness in Practice," moderated by Lowell Milken. Based on evidence from his schools that "TAP works," McIntyre explains that he has taken what he has learned from TAP's "common-sense elements of teacher collaboration, leadership, accountability through an excellent evaluation tool, and performance-based compensation" and integrated them into the non-TAP schools.
