Another Battle over Student Tests to Evaluate Teachers

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Unified School District would be eligible for $40 million in federal dollars if it could demonstrate that standardized student test scores were being used as one means of evaluating teacher performance. In addition, a local judge says that's required by state law. Superintendent John Deasy devised a voluntary performance review program, but Warren Fletcher, president of the United Teachers of LA, sent a robo-call to 38,000 members telling them not to participate. We speak with them both.
