Will value-added evaluations help Race to the Top?

Louisiana's education leaders are hopeful that passage of Act 54, the state's new value-added model of teacher evaluation, will help the state's application for federal Race to the Top funds.

As Advocate reporter Will Sentell writes here, enactment of the new model is the only big change in the state's application. Whether it will be enough to earn the state $175 million remains to be seen.
