Ohio is introducing a new way of grading teachers, one based on student test scores and whether students learn as much as expected in a given year. It uses a measure called value-added.
- Sunday: What is value-added and why does it matter?
- Monday: Are Ohio’s “best” teachers paid accordingly?
- Tuesday: Are teachers at high-poverty schools at a disadvantage in these ratings?
- Log on to StateImpact Ohio and the Plain Dealer all this week;
- Listen to radio reports Monday and Tuesday morning and afternoon on Ohio public radio stations;
- Tune into WCPN’s call-in talk show the Sound of Ideas Wednesday for a special value-added show; and
