Senate OKs Increased Education Evaluations

West Virginia's public schools would evaluate their teachers and other professional staff at least annually under legislation passed 28-4 by the state Senate to the House of Delegates, The Associated Press reports.

With educators now reviewed mostly when they start out, "supporters say evaluations would encourage good teachers while helping struggling ones improve," the article said. "Opponents question the added burden on principals and teachers."
