A Trifecta of Micromanaging West Virginia Schools
West Virginia State Senate Debate of Senate Bill 18 on March 29th

SB 18 gives the legislature final say on curriculum  and testing decisions made for West Virginia schools.  Politicians don't need to be making those decisions, educators do.  We need to let teachers teach.

Check out this short video about our Senate Democrats fight against SB 18, which Republican Education Chair, Senator Kenny Mann said was, "not needed."

Senator Mike Romano called it, "a mandate for micromanagement of our education system."

Republican Senator Patricia Rucker: "We get to dictate what standards and curriculum they use." (She home schools her kids.)

Democrat Leader Roman Prezioso: “This bill is ill-conceived, irresponsible and unconstitutional. They hit the trifecta.”

It passed 18-16. #BadIdeasFactory
