This is a great premise for a book. I love historical analysis that explains how we've gotten to a particular point on a hot button issue; teacher effectiveness is undoubtedly one of the biggest ones in education right now. I find fascinating the use of economic (both macro and micro) forces as a lens for such explanations. I had several courses in college that filtered history through this lens and it's amazing what can be plausibly connected together (think Freakonomics-like studies). The shift in teacher evaluation right now (in my humble opinion) is heavily linked to the budget crisis of public entities as a result of recent recessions - and once again teachers are taking the fall. tl;dr: I'm anxiously awaiting your book :)
