State Superintendent Randy
Dorn testified this week to the House Education Committee on legislation that would base reductions in force on
teacher evaluations. Dorn talked about House Bill 1609 on today’s KOHO Morning Show. He said the bill would
change the way school districts deal with teacher layoffs. He says the system put in place years ago did not help
ineffective teachers improve and it did not do a good job of removing ineffective teachers.
