Haslam announces review of teacher evaluations

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam is asking for an outside review of new teacher evaluation standards in Tennessee.

The Republican governor said in a news conference at the Capitol on Wednesday that he has asked for an education foundation launched by former U.S. Sen. Bill Frist to conduct the review and to report recommendations back to the state next summer.

The organization called SCORE is headed by former state Sen. Jamie Woodson, a Knoxville Republican.

Haslam said the process will allow the state to "separate the anecdotes from the flaws."

The governor said he will discourage lawmakers from considering bills seeking to change evaluation standards while the study is going on.
