Eric Hanushek is interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about why teachers’ value-added scores should be made public. Hanushek makes the case in writing in “The Value of Releasing Value-Added Ratings of Teachers,” which appeared on the Ed Next blog earlier this week.

He has more to say about a larger strategy for boosting teacher quality in “An Effective Teacher in Every Classroom,” which appeared in the Summer 2010 issue of Ed Next.

He also authored “Valuing Teachers: How Much is a Good Teacher Worth?” which appeared in the Summer 2011 issue of Ed Next.

    I think he is right in about holding teachers first but I think the government hands in education has to be fixed first. I think teachers jobs are very hard and we have no idea how hard because we haven’t sat in there shoes, and all the paper work and other stuff required by local and state govrnment today is getting in the way of them doing there job best. If we can remove all that BS then we can publish test scores and get rid of the bad one.
