VAM under Scrutiny: Teacher Evaluation Litigation in the States
Hazi, Helen M.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v90 n5-6 p184-190 2017
As teacher quality is judged and tenured teachers are rated ineffective, educators are challenging teacher evaluation systems in the courts as they adversely affect their employment. Teachers have lost jobs, pay, tenure, and career advancement. This article reports on these cases, providing an interpretation in light of court cases about teacher evaluation with an emphasis on value-added models (VAM), and focuses on the litigation working its way through the courts.
