Union contends that some teachers' evaluation are being based on the test scores of students they did not teach.

Teachers have filed a lawsuit challenging Florida's move to tie teacher evaluations to student test scores. The Orlando Sentinel says the lawsuit contends that the state's merit-pay law unfairly resulted in many teachers' evaluations being based on the test scores of students or subjects they did not teach. That violates the equal-protection and due-process clauses of the U.S. Constitution, the teachers assert. The Florida Education Association and the National Education Association filed the suit.
