One Thing: The Return of AB 5

Alexander Russo | November 27, 2012



Many Washington insiders would disagree pretty vehemently with SI&A Cabinet Report‘s assessment that the Obama administration will try for a comprehensive overhaul of No Child Left Behind, but the news outlet’s latest article (Stakes likely go up on teacher evaluations in Obama’s second term) is still a good reminder that key policy issues like including student achievement in teacher evaluations aren’t going anywhere and that a resurrected version of AB 5, the failed proposal to revamp teacher evaluation statewide, is likely to return in January or thereafter. Theoretically, UTLA and LAUSD are going to come to an agreement on this issue before then, but it’s possible that those talks will stall out, putting Sacramento back in the spotlight.
