Brewer Signs Bill Creating New Teacher Evaluations

Jan-BrewerArizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill into law making it easier to fire some low-performing teachers.  The bill signed Monday allows experienced teachers to be placed on probationary status if they received the lowest rating on one yearly performance review.  

That status allows a school board to fire a teacher with little notice.  

Critics say an overhaul of evaluations passed last year still is not fully implemented and lawmakers should not pass additional changes.
