Problems With Teacher Evaluations in Louisiana
The state’s new teacher evaluation plan is drawing more criticism. The latest comes from a Shreveport State Representative.
Alan Seabaugh tells KEEL news the new teacher evaluation plan is flawed. He says the students at South Highlands get some of the highest performance scores in the state, but under this new plan some of the South Highlands teachers are getting low performing scores. Seabaugh says the jobs of some of these teachers could be in jeopardy. He says even when high-scoring students show a drop in scores, the teachers could get lower performance scores. Half of a teachers evaluation is now linked to student test scores.
