A recent LA Times article, “Who’s teaching L.A.’s kids?” (August 15), presented readers with the results of an LA Times-sponsored “value-added” analysis of teaching in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The statistical analysis was done by an economist, and was supplemented by classroom observations made by LA Times reporters.

How fair , is what is reported in the press about education. This story got great headlines.

Does it help?
