To the editor:
So Brownback wants to evaluate teachers based on a one-shot test, among other things, and post the evaluation on the Internet. The Kansas State Department of Education is already working on an evaluation system for educators in Kansas. KEEP, or Kansas Educator Evaluation Protocol, is being tested in 17 school districts in Kansas. This program has been developed with the input of teachers. The proposal by Brownback doesn’t look like KEEP at all. We should let people who know education best develop the proper evaluation system for Kansas teachers.
