Newspaper’s teacher ratings stir up controversy

eSchool News is reporting on a story that has made a lot of headlines this month – the LA Times publishing  of “teacher ratings”.

See the full article here.

My questions to you are:

What do you think?  Should this type of rating of teachers be published by a major newspaper?  Should it be published at all?  Is there a better way to measure “teacher quality” and even if there is, if nothing can be done about it, is there any value in doing so?

I look forward to your answers.

Truly,

Steve
