ALBUQUERQUE — Teachers who receive a poor rating on New Mexico’s new evaluation system could see their paychecks affected, the state’s public education chief said Monday.

However, Hanna Skandera said there is some flexibility because teachers rated “ineffective” or “minimally effective” can get a recommendation from their principal and still move up the state’s three-tiered licensure system, which determines their minimum pay, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

    So a low evaluation means lower pay or possibly no employment?? Whose fault is it for the low evaluation?

    Will this lead to teachers fighting to get to the schools with a higher SES and more English as a first language students? I predict yes.

    Can we implement a success based pay scale for the legislators? One where we define success, not them, of course.
