Digging for "Artifacts" for the New Teacher Evaluation System Amidst the Ruins of a Public School

As part of the new, Danielson-based evaluation system in place in N.Y. City, there seems to be an assumption of guilt.  Teachers need to produce a variety of up to eight "artifacts" (or pieces of evidence) to prove their professional innocence.  It is demeaning, time-consuming and wasteful of limited resources.  It should also be noted that City schools often lack paper, ink, toner, Riso masters, etc. with which to facilitate the process.  The picture below was created by imagining what some real artifacts might look like in the ruins of a public school.
