What are parents doing with the value-added info?
In the debate about public release about teachers’ value-added scores, you see a lot of quotes of the “parents would want to know” variety, but not a lot of quotes from parents themselves. Three months after the Los Angeles Times project blasted into the edusphere, I think we are due for some articles, in California and elsewhere, that really get into the issue of what parents want, or do not want, regarding this information, and what they are doing with it if they indeed have access to it.
