Re-evaluating LA Schools Using the 'Value-Added' Method

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Times has been reporting on what's called "value added" analysis of standardized test scores.  Last week, the paper revealed that LA Unified had information that could help evaluate individual teachers, but wasn't using it, partly because of objection from the teachers' union. The United Teachers of Los Angeles, or UTLA is holding its annual meeting in Indio, and President A.J. Duffy has accepted this district's offer to reopen negotiations over teacher evaluations.
