KILAUEA, Hawaii -

Four public school teachers on Kauai are so frustrated with new educator evaluations that they've sent the state a protest letter calling the system a "disaster."

The Kilauea Elementary School teachers complain in the letter sent earlier this month that the new system requires an overwhelming amount of work and that there hasn't been adequate training in implementing the evaluations.

The evaluations were implemented after a bitter contract dispute between the state and the Hawaii State Teachers Association.

Department of Education spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz says with anything new, there will be some who are unhappy with changes.

The Garden Island reports the nationally board certified teachers say they are in favor of evaluations but the new system is hurting morale and is too time consuming.
