Connecticut’s largest teachers union added its voice on Tuesday to a growing chorus of proposals for school reform. The union’s plan addresses the controversial issue of teacher tenure.
Connecticut Education Association Executive Director Mary Loftus Levine says teachers are proposing to replace tenure with a streamlined dismissal process, "...to remove underperforming teachers and also allow for due process. We want teachers to be evaluated."
But she says, a teacher’s performance should not be judged solely by test scores.
