Louisiana's 60,000 public school teachers are about to face their first job evaluations under a new review system that continues to spark controversy and questions.

Classroom observations by principals and others, which have been used for years, have also been revamped.
The Advocate reports now teachers will face two-part job reviews that are causing some nervousness.
