“Educators began to offer up fixes Tuesday after the state Board of Regents voted to dump a widely criticized test-based teacher evaluation system that was pushed through in last spring’s budget.
‘Teachers are not afraid to be evaluated, and they are not afraid of tests,’ said Lisa Meade, principal of Corinth Middle School.
But Meade added that the tests should be meaningful.
She spoke at a Capitol news conference called after the Regents voted Monday to delay use of student test scores in evaluations until at least the 2019-2020 school year.”
