The governor said in a statement that "there's a possibility to develop a positive path forward that has a realistic chance of success."
He says he'll talk next with state lawmakers and the superintendent of instruction about the state's options.
Any speculation on what that path might be? We know that State Superintendent Dorn wanted to change language in the law to mandate use of state test scores in teacher evaluations and sponsored legislation that did not make it through the current session that would have met Duncan's criteria for continuation of the waiver. We know that the Senate voted down legislation to make the language change partly because of other requirements added to the proposed bill. So, what is the vehicle for a positive path forward?
