New PED numbers not favorable toward teachers

PED numbers, ratings, teachers

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Updated numbers from the Public Education Department show teachers in New Mexico are rating slightly lower than first thought under the new controversial evaluation system.

According to the PED, nearly 73 percent of teachers were evaluated as effective, highly effective or exemplary, compared to 76 percent when the ratings first came out.

Twenty-three percent were rated minimally effective and 4.2 percent were deemed to be ineffective.

The PED says the difference covers an additional 5,000 teachers because of late data coming in from schools.

It also says the change reflects the districts correcting some data, too. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
