S.C. Senate Continues Debate on School Improvement Bill
Teacher Bill of Rights Defeated
When the State Senate re-convenes next week it will begin its’ third week of debate on an omnibus School Improvement Bill. For the past two years it’s been the General Assembly’s first priority. It aims to update an array of state policies to produce better educated students, and perhaps most importantly shore-up the teaching profession by keeping good teachers in the classroom and to entice new teachers to the profession.
This week the Senate voted to remove the so-called teacher Bill of Rights from the bill, something teachers support and already approved by the House of Representatives.
