Sweeping reforms on how teachers across the state are evaluated could be coming soon.

Wednesday the Michigan Council for Educator Effectiveness (MCEE) came out with it's recommendations. The council proposes changing teacher evaluations from entirely subjective to include objective standards based on student growth.

Administrators would be evaluated using a different set of standards.

The recommendations are the result of 18 months of work by the MCEE, which was created as part of Governor Snyder's teacher tenure reform effort in 2011.

In a statement emailed to WILX, David Hecker, the President of the American Federation of Teachers said the recommendations were "thoughtful."

"The Council's recommendations leave room for important decisions about evaluation to be made at the district level," said Hecker.

WILX will have a full report coming up tonight on WILX News Ten at 5 p.m.
