Evaluating Teachers Publicly

Hosted by

Evaluations of teachers based on student test scores have been made public in New York and Los Angeles. Will that make public schools better or worse? Will teachers be shamed, fired or leave the profession for the wrong reasons? Also, President Obama speaks to UAW convention as Michigan voters head to the polls, and how women shape the way we use language.
