New legislation could require performance evaluations in public schools

April 12, 2012

The Hawai'i State Teachers Association (HSTA) is opposing a bill that could "supersede collective bargaining rights" by allowing the state Board of Education to create an evaluation program. The evaluations are part of a $75 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, which could potentially be lost if the schools do not comply.

"The teachers want an opportunity to be involved in the process," said Wil Okabe, HSTA president.

Lawmakers insist that the legislation does not have the effect of taking away bargaining rights, and that teachers would be evaluated in a fair manner.
