In an interview with Michigan Radio, State Board of Education President John Austin credited work by the Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness, which was led by Deborah Loewenberg Ball, for establishing a foundation for creating a new system of teacher evaluations. Austin mentioned Ball and the council for a series of recommendations the council made in a report to the state legislature in 2013 that could influence a new statewide system of evaluating educators. The interview with Austin, “How should teachers be evaluated in Michigan?” is part of Michigan Radio’s “Learning to Teach” series. Access the interview here.
