I like the idea of including students so authentically in the interview process.

This is an interesting approach to hiring teachers.
Is this a MTLSD idea or has it been used elsewhere?

It would be interesting to read the students' evaluations/comments to see what they look for or wish for in a teacher.
(They wouldn't need to identify candidates or students.)

Student panels were also used in the hiring decision of AC, right?

Curious, what job posting is this in response to? I periodically check and don't recall seeing a posting (may be just timing). Is this the one for the teacher/coach who is going to USC?
