Oct 15, 2013

How are states responding to the push for greater accountability and transparency in how teacher job performance is measured? How are union leaders helping members adjust to the new expectations? Can evaluations be used as a lever to more equitably distribute teacher talent, and ensure the neediest students get the most effective instruction?

Speakers include Stephanie Banchero, Wall St. Journal (moderator); Sandi Jacobs, National Council on Teacher Quality; Sarah Lenhoff, director of policy and research, Education Trust - Midwest; and Dennis Van Roekel, National Education Association.

Recorded at the University of Chicago on Oct. 10, 2013 at EWA's education reporting workshop More Than Scores: Assessing the Future of Teacher Evaluations, co-hosted by the Michigan State University School of Journalism.
