The efforts by the Obama administration to promote changes in the way teachers are evaluated have paid off in some ways but backfired in others.

In this episode of the EdNext podcast, Marty West talks with Chad Aldeman, a principal at Bellwether Education Partners who worked as a policy advisor at the U.S. Department of Education, about what went right and what went wrong with teacher evaluation reform.

Aldeman is the author of “The Teacher Evaluation Revamp, In Hindsight,” which will appear in the Spring 2017 issue of Education Next.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, SoundcloudStitcher and here every Wednesday.
