LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, the California State Board of Education will be considering the results of Superintendent Tom Torlakson’s Advisory Task Force on Accountability and Continuous Improvement.

David Rattray, executive vice president, Education and Workforce Development, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, is one of the members of the Task Force.

“I was pleased to have an opportunity to provide the business community’s perspective to the Task Force. I am excited that the Superintendent values the lessons that businesses have learned in recent years: We are most effective when our employees are both accountable and given the opportunity to succeed,” stated Rattray.

“The business community knows that high-performing teams are successful when we create a positive work culture that attracts, retains and motivates employees to perform at the highest possible level. We also know that we can never evaluate an employee or an enterprise based on a single metric. A more meaningful evaluation incorporates a number of factors. I look forward to California schools moving in that direction.”

David Rattray is available for comment.
