LA Judge Orders LAUSD to Comply with State Evaluation Law

A Los Angeles judge has ruled that LAUSD must comply with a state law when evaluating its teachers and principals. The decision is a response to a lawsuit filed by a group of parents last year. They claim that the district doesn’t take student achievement into consideration when giving evaluations. A teacher’s union opposes the ruling while the Mayor praised it.
