NEW YORK (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is calling for public school teachers to be evaluated each year by colleagues in their districts.

Christie outlined his proposal at a speech Thursday in New York City. He says teachers should be measured by classroom performance and student test scores, and school districts should develop their own evaluation plans based on that framework.

The Republican has emerged as a popular figure nationwide since taking office in 2010, in part for his harsh criticism of teachers' unions. He says good teachers don't need a union and most want a stronger voice in education reform than their union allows.

New Jersey Education Association spokesman Steve Baker calls Christie's proposal "an educational disaster" for students.
