FORUM DESCRIPTION

The U.S. Department of Education's Race to the Top Initiative requires participating states to develop "evaluation systems for teachers and principals that (a) differentiate effectiveness using multiple rating categories that take into account data on student growth... as a significant factor." *  The move to link teacher evaluations with standardized test scores has added fuel to the already fiery national debate about how best to measure and reward teacher effectiveness.

* U.S. Department of Education. (2009, November). Race to the Top Program Executive Summary. Retrieved August 2, 2012, from U.S. Department of Education: http://www2.ed.gov/programs/racetothetop/executive-summary.pdf
