Rep. Morgan Irwin’s statement on the passage of House Bill 1319
Today, House Bill 1319 unanimously passed the House floor. This is a great step forward for our education system by allowing teachers to spend more time in their classrooms innovating and educating our students, rather than focusing on evaluations. This bill allows principals to evaluate good teachers every six years, instead of the current standard of every four years. Our students deserve the full attention of their teachers. This bill helps to make this happen. It's amazing what we can accomplish for our children when we all work together.
