A bill to be introduced in the legislature would dramatically change how Colorado's public school teachers are evaluated and gain tenure.

The measure, being crafted by a trio of Democratic lawmakers, would tie a favorable teacher review to student achievement measures and calls for the revocation of tenure for teachers who have poor evaluations and substandard student growth.

It is one of several bills being prepared to shape Colorado educational policy in an effort to get a share of federal Race to the Top money.
