The House passed it out of committee today! It is expected to be introduced on the House floor today!
Reported by the TRI-county Alliance-
- There are no election standards for petition signers who are effectively voting for a school takeover. This means they do not have to be registered voters, citizens, or legal residents.
- SB 620 allows for the unconstitutional taking of public property by a small faction without a vote of the people or even majority support.
- There are no quality requirements to ensure that the authorizing body or management organization for a Conversion School has any experience or success in running a school.
