A Dane County lawmaker wants to know whether teachers are earning their pay.
State Representative Brett Davis (R-Oregon) says there are some world-class teachers in Wisconsin. His mom is a third grade teacher and his brother is a principal at a school in Green Bay. Still, Davis thinks it's wrong that current state law prohibits schools districts from using results of student exams to evaluate teacher performances.
The Oregon Republican is introducing legislation that would repeal the state's current prohibition on using student test results to evaluate teaching performances.
Davis says the move would also make Wisconsin eligible for more federal funding.
