Stephen Sawchuk writes in Education Week's Teacher Beat blog: In the wake of several states releasing large sets of "value added" data on individual teachers to media outlets last year, I wrote a widely read story for Education Week on whether formal teacher-evaluation records are publicly accessible. We found quite a lot of variation in the scope of states' open-records laws. A lot has changed since 2012, with at least four states altering their laws since the story ran. So we wanted to give you a sense of where things stand now.
