InsiderAdvantage reported this morning that a bill that would change student testing and teacher in evaluations in Georgia is supposed to be voted on today by the House Education.
Senate Bill 364, sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Tippins (R-Marietta), decreases the weight of student growth in teacher evaluations from 50 percent to 30 percent.
However, Insider Advantage learned early this morning that Gov. Nathan Deal contacted House Education leaders last night and asked them to hold SB 364 and to raise the emphasis of standardized testing in the teacher evaluations.
A bill that would change student testing and teacher evaluations in Georgia could be voted on today in the House Education Committee.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Tippins (R-Marietta) sailed through the Senate. The House committee has already held one hearing on the proposed legislation last week, although no public comment was heard and no vote was taken.
