ILE - this July 7, 2014 file photo shows Education Secretary Arne Duncan speaking at the White House in Washington. Duncan said Thursday that states can apply for extra time before they use student test scores to judge teachers' performance. Duncan's decision acknowledges concerns by teachers' unions and others that it's too early to make teacher personnel decisions based on how well students do on new assessments developed under the Common Core standards that will be used in much of the country this school year.
