Great Expectations but Politics as Usual: The Rise and Fall of a State-Level Teacher Evaluation Initiative.
Johnson, Bob L., Jr.
Journal of Personnel Evaluation in Education, v13 n4 p361-81 Nov 1999
Examined the political rise and fall of the Louisiana Teacher Evaluation Program (LATEP), the centerpiece of the state's educational reform efforts. Study findings suggest that the political problems encountered by LATEP arose from competing program theories and competing implementation theories. Findings underscore the pitfalls associated with attempts to implement a highly prescribed evaluation program on such a large scale. (SLD)
