Texas piloting two new teacher evaluation systems

The teacher strike that has given Chicago kids an unwelcome vacation is partly about money but largely about teacher evaluations.

Across the country, from California to Florida, demands for better assessment of public school instructors have inspired pointed, if less dramatic, reactions.
