CA May Lose out on Millions in Education Stimulus

Data-driven school reform is a major objective of the Obama administration with regard to education. But California has among the worst records of any state in collecting and using data for the evaluation of teachers and schools. And if California legislators don't change a law that prevents it from using student test scores to measure teacher performance, the state could lose millions of dollars in education stimulus money.
