The Times has sued the Los Angeles Unified School District to obtain its teacher ratings that are calculated using students' standardized test scores.

The nation's second-largest school district calculated confidential "Academic Growth Over Time" ratings for about 12,000 math and English teachers two years ago. Last year, the district issued new ratings to about 14,000 instructors that were also viewed by their principals.
