What Makes a Good Teacher?

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Times has created a furor at the LA Unified School District with a lengthy story called "Grading the Teachers: Who's Teaching LA's Kids?"  With information provided by the district after a California Public Records Act request, some 6,000 3rd through 5th grade teachers were evaluated using what's called a "value added" analysis. We hear from a Times reporter, the leader of the teachers' union and the Deputy Superintendent of Schools.
