INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A House Committee passed a measure that would tie teacher pay to student performance.

The Republican-controlled House Education Committee voted 8- 5 along party lines to approve the bill, which is part of Governor Daniels' aggressive education reform agenda.

The bill requires teachers to be evaluated every year, and those who fall into the lowest two of four evaluation categories would not get automatic pay raises.

Local districts would create their own evaluation systems, but "would" have to include objective measures of student achievement, like scores on statewide standardized tests.
