Bill Making Teacher Evaluations More Fair Advances

on February 17, 2017 - 4:52pm

STATE News:

SANTA FE -- Today, Rep. Debra Sariñana’s (D-Albuquerque) bill to make teacher evaluations more fair, HB 163, passed the House Education Committee.

The bill specifically ensures a teacher’s evaluation is not disproportionately affected by students who have too many absences, and therefore have far less classroom hours with that teacher.

“Teachers want evaluations to be fair, and this provision will ensure our educators are not unfairly judged,” Rep. Sariñana said.
