Union Leaders Announce (Teacher's) Strike, Senate Passes Ed Bill
WOWK 13 NEWS ^ | Feb. 18, 2019 | Jon Bobango

Hours after the WV Teachers Unions announced a statewide strike, the Omnibus Education Bill passed through the Senate, 18-16.

Last week, the House of Delegates made major changes to the bill but on Monday an amendment by the Senate washed away many of those changes.

The new version of the bill reintroduced ESAs, with 1,000 for special needs and bullied students. It also took the number of charter schools from two to seven, with a limit of two introduced per year.

Senate President Mitch Carmichael reacted to the strike on Twitter Monday night," After years of ruining our state’s public education system, the teacher union bosses have finally lost their grip on the Legislature and seemingly have lost their grip on reality.

Comprehensive education reform that will improve student performance, provide parental choice and empower teachers is coming - because parents, taxpayers, and job providers want our broken public education system fixed now. I am confident the House of Delegates will do the right thing and pass this compromise bill.

Reason number 42 why education island should remain a state issue. 10th amendment. Last i saw it takes 27% of the tax revenue for education to the feds to take it in and redistribute it to the states.

Do not put your children in government-run brainwashing centers. Same really for charter, private, and parochial. Homeschooling is the only option to ensure a valid primary and secondary education.

If you’re referring to pisspoor reporting, I agree. Too many abbreviations without fully written out names. Sign of an amateur or lazy person.

Two? And WV is obviously West Virginia. ESA (with 1000 of em for special needs), no idea.

Now if you actually went to the link, there's a couple more, but this is FR. Who does that?

Shut down the government, they go berserk and we are all doomed. Shut down the public schools and they are brave and courageous heroes.

Education costs/taxes are fast becoming untenable.
