McIntyre testifies before House subcommittee on teacher evaluations

Posted:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WATE) - Knox County Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre tells lawmakers in Washington that a new teacher evaluation system could do more to improve education than any other recent reform.

McIntyre testified Thursday in front of the House Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education subcommittee.

The hearing sought to look at ways school systems around the nation are measuring teacher performance.

"Tennessee's teacher evaluation system is not perfect, but it is a vast improvement over our previous evaluation process and I think it will prove to be a very valuable professional growth and instructional improvement tool," McIntyre testified.

Joining Dr. McIntyre for the testimony was a representative from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a teacher from Indianapolis, and a human resources executive from the Houston school system.
