Michigan Council of Education Effectiveness http://michiganradio.org en New teacher evaluation system proposed to Michigan Legislature http://michiganradio.org/post/new-teacher-evaluation-system-proposed-michigan-legislature <p>The Michigan Council for Education Effectiveness is proposing a new way to evaluate teachers and administrators.&nbsp; The council presented its recommendations to the state legislature, the governor and the state Board of Education on Wednesday.</p><p>Michigan currently has statewide standards for teachers, but there is not an evaluation system in place. Current evaluations are conducted differently in each district. This new system would require teachers to be evaluated every year and receive one of three ratings: "ineffective," "provisional" or "professional." The evaluation is based on the teacher's classroom practice and their students' performance.
