Chicago's adoption of a new value-added evaluation system for the city's teachers is being criticized by professors and researchers from 16 area universities. They claim, in a letter to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and school officials, that there is not enough evidence to support the effectiveness of the evaluations. Instead, they recommend testing the teacher evaluations in a pilot program, while placing less emphasis on students' improvement on standardized tests.
