Why some believe good teaching cannot be measured

In this blogpost from Teacherleaders Network (US) it says:
" . . .teaching is an extraordinarily complex and demanding form of professional practice whose quality is impossible to capture accurately in a simple metric".

Yes and yet no. There are ways to get around this as we all know the McKinsey reports have tried 2007 and 2010. To say it is impossible is not acceptable, it is just very hard and couragous to do for school leaders. There is no way getting around measuring and supporting the teachers and in the end the students.
