Local honored during conventionMore
UPDATE: Thursday, Feb 26th
The bill was scheduled for third reading today, but was laid over for one day.
Now, more than ever, we need you to stand up for public education by contacting the Senate!
The Senate Education Committee passed SB 14, the WV Public Charter Schools Act, on a strict party line vote Tuesday evening. Because of the thousands of emails and phone calls made by school employees, parents and community members, the Committee spent ELEVEN meetings debating and amending the bill. The bill now heads to the Senate Finance Committee.
The Senate Finance Committee CAN stop this bill. It is critical that all school employees, parents and community members email and call members of the Senate Finance Committee immediately!
