Policy News from Little Rock

If you haven’t already checked out the ADE’s efforts to keep those interested in ed policy up-to-date on the legislative session, we highly recommend you do so. Their web page provides a lot of information about legislative bills and meetings that affect education.

The House Education Committee is meeting Thursday to discuss a few things: a bill to prevent non-citizens from being eligible for in-state tuition (sort of the opposite of the DREAM act); flexibility in start dates; a bill to increase the public’s access to school district reports; a new mentoring program for superintendents; virtual schools in Arkansas; and a few bills about curriculum here and here. Much of this agenda is on the deferred agenda. We will keep you posted if anything else happens.
