ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A state appeals court has refused to block New Mexico’s teacher evaluation system.

A state Court of Appeals opinion issued Thursday upholds a District Court judge’s refusal to stop implementation of the New Mexico Public Education Department’s system.

The judge ruled that Secretary Hanna Skandera has the authority to carry out administrative rules such as the teacher evaluation program, and the Court of Appeals agreed.

The challenge was filed by a coalition that included a union, a union president and state legislators.
