State appeals courts in California and Florida have ruled that newspapers can have access to "value-added" information on individual teachers.

An appeals court in Los Angeles recently upheld a ruling permitting the Los Angeles Times to access such data. The Los Angeles Unified School District had tried to prevent release of the data.

In Florida, meanwhile, an appeals court overturned an earlier ruling that sided with the state and against a newspaper that had filed a records request for the value-added data.
