Are schools being too generous?

This editorial asserts that because schools are not evaluating teachers using student growth measures that are based solely on test scores, they are not honestly evaluating our teachers.  We already had the answer that the public schools are riddled with bad teachers.  Now the data isn't supporting the answer.  Isn't it possible that the answer was wrong?  Or at the very least, that the method of evaluation is extremely flawed?
