LIU hosts Pa. teacher rating event

Educators, administrators and the general public are slated to gather in the third floor of the Luzerne Intermediate Unit headquarters on Tioga Avenue tonight, though it shouldn't get too crammed. The LIU is the local host for a statewide virtual "town hall meeting" on teacher effectiveness. "We expect more than 1,000 people attending at about 30 sites," predicted Joan Benso, president of the non-profit Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, which organized the event. A web-based, interactive panel discussion featured state Secretary of Education Ron Tomalis is set to run 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The main topic is proposed changes to the state-mandated teacher evaluation process.
