Association of Texas Professional Educators Regional Representative Roger Gutierrez says the group is concerned about the new school ratings system.
Another group is voicing its opposition toward the state's new school accountability system.
Currently, the state's school ratings system only has two options for schools. They either "Meet Standards" or "Improvement Required".
The Texas Education Agency announced this week the new system will grade schools on an A through F school rating system. The new system will go into effect in August 2018.
The Association of Texas Professional Educators says it'll hurt schools already in need. A.T.P.E. Regional Representative Roger Gutierrez says,"It can be seen as negative, of course. If you have a school that's rated as an F, students are certainly not going to want to attend that school. You're certainly not going to attract the best teachers to go and work at that school."
Gutierrez says he agrees that the school accountability system needs to be restructured. He says using the same system to rate all schools isn't fair because every school is different when it comes to the students they have and the challenges they face.
