(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Students aren’t the only ones facing an exam when the new school year begins next Monday.  

Some of Nevada’s 25,000 public school teachers will also be tested.  

The state’s new mandatory evaluation system will rank instructors and principals in four categories, ranging from ineffective to highly effective.  It will be based on administrator observations and student test scores.  

Supporters say it will lead to better education, but critics claim the scoring method has flaws.  There will be a two-year testing period, before the program is required at all schools.
