This week in the Senate, my colleagues and I have started work on the Charter School Bill, H.3241. I believe this bill is important to the future of our state’s educational system because it integrates diversity and choice into the process. As we increase competition in the market for education of our children, we give parents more choices and our schools become better. H.3241 has bipartisan support because improving education in our state cannot be a partisan issue.
Gina Smith of The State Newspaper wrote about the Charter School Bill in an article that ran yesterday. State Superintendent of Education Mick Zais has made the legislation a top priority for his department because the one-size fits all model doesn’t work in education. You can find her article here:
