LIVE CHAT: How should Michigan teachers be evaluated?

Aug 26, 2013

It sounds like a great idea.

Evaluate the teachers. Keep the good ones. Weed out the bad ones.

But how do you do this?

Your government representatives in Lansing will be debating a statewide teacher evaluation system this fall.

Here's your chance to talk to the people who put the proposal together.

The proposal was developed by the Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness, a committee appointed by the state to develop an evaluation model. 

The model would rate teachers by both student test scores and classroom practices.

Today at noon, the Detroit Free Press will host members of the committee and the education community on a live chat. They will be taking questions from readers.
