I wrote earlier this week about the massive amount of education meetings going on next week. Add one more to the list: The House Education Committee on Wednesday, May 4th. On tap is House Bill 161 sponsored by State Rep. Deb Hudson which covers The Parent Empowerment Education Savings Act (school vouchers for special needs students), Senator Margaret Rose-Henry and State Rep Earl Jaques’ Senate Bills 92 and 93 dealing with autism, and State Rep. Paul Baumbach’s House Bill 333 which looks to lower school board terms from five to three years. Hudson’s bill was on the agenda a few weeks ago but disappeared. The Senate Education Committee meeting will take place at 3pm, but as usual, no agenda is up for it. That usually doesn’t happen until the day before.
