California Teachers Association to Spend $3 Million Against High Quality Teachers Act « The Greenroom: "CTA also opposes the “High Quality Teachers Act of 2014,” which would establish a teacher evaluation system based on multiple factors, including student performance, and require school districts to use those teacher assessments, rather than seniority, as the basis for layoff decisions.
The language of this initiative is also awaiting approval by the attorney general.
CTA has a proposal under consideration that should the High Quality Teachers Act qualify for the ballot the union would sponsor a competing initiative to create a teacher evaluation system based upon the CTA Teacher Evaluation Framework.
Each year, each of CTA’s 300,000 members contributes $36 to the union’s ballot initiative fund. This money is rolled over year-to-year if not spent and can be augmented by grants from NEA’s national ballot measure fund."
