TEI Myth of the Day
TEI Myth: DISD Turnover has been 14% with the TEI.
Source: Dallas ISD, TEI: 2017 Overview and Update (November 2017, Presentation to the Board of Trustees)
FACT: The claims of 14% DISD teacher turnover are inaccurate, and incorporate only partial year data. Dallas ISD presented this inaccurate information to its Board of Trustees and then to the Texas Commission on Public School Finance in support of TEI in February 2018. Dallas local media and the business community have also presented this inaccurate data. I personally provided the Dallas Morning News Editorial Board with the data from TEA refuting this inaccurate information and they chose not to correct the misinformation.
