Struggling Schools

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOpposition has continued to legislation that requires a new statewide school division to take over under-performing schools until they turnaround—even after Governor McDonnell proposed amendments last week.

The bill would establish a new Opportunity Educational Institution Board to assume management of schools that have been denied accreditation, but the Virginia Education Association, organizations representing school boards and superintendents, and the PTA are among the groups calling on lawmakers to reject them.

As Virginia Public Radio’s Anne Marie Morgan reports, they didn’t like the bill before—and say they like it even less with the amendments.
