LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Groups one might think would oppose a plan to keep a closer eye on teachers are supporting the governor's idea.

At the same time, more details are wanted.

From our state's Education Association to the Clark County School District, they're applauding Gov. Brian Sandoval's proposal to ensure students have only the best teachers in the classrooms. But there are questions: what's the cost and can our state afford it?

Nick Diarchangel of the Nevada State Education Association says when it comes to education, even the teachers want the best and brightest in front of students. He says the governor's proposed Teacher Evaluation Database falls in line with that expectation.

So far, the NSEA likes what the governor said last night about a statewide teaching rubric expected to help identify outstanding teachers and those falling short.

It will set the stage to help lagging teachers catch up to those who are successful in the classroom, but Diarchangel says they've got financial questions and, as of now, no answers from the governor's office.

Amanda Fulkerson of the Clark County School District also has questions about the cost.

The governor's office did not respond to requests about cost estimates. The Clark County Teachers Association did not respond to questions about this story.
