Indiana Teacher Evaluations Show Few are ?Ineffective?

by Sammy Edmonds posted May 22 2014 4:11PM
After a year under tougher new teacher evaluation rules, a new study finds that all of the teachers in Indiana who received the state’s lowest rating last year could probably fit into a single school cafeteria.
Statewide, just 219 educators were rated “ineffective” last year, representing less than half a percent of the nearly 50,000 educators who received ratings. In fact, 97-percent of the teachers were classified in the top two categories as “effective” or “highly effective.”
The ratings are based on an evaluation system put in place over the past two years that was expected to make it harder for teachers to earn top scores.
