LIFOsuction At The LAT

Today seems predestined to be Michelle Rhee day with the rollout of her new project.

But before all heads turn that way don’t miss a great article on seniority and layoffs from the Los Angeles Times. It’s exactly the kind of exercise many hoped they would do with their value-added database rather than what they originally did. Less outing of individual teachers and more analysis like this would help move this issue to a more productive place where performance, context, and experience are all considered in high-stakes personnel decisions.

Update: RiShawn Biddle and I debate the issue on Twitter.
