Amendment To Reform Higher Ed Board, Department Of Public Instruction Passes State House
The constitutional amendment, which if it passes the legislature would be put on the ballot, would combine the State Board of Higher Education and the Department of Public Instruction into one cabinet-level Department of Education the direct of which would serve under the Governor.
With all the scandals and controversies in higher education in this state, not to mention the Department of Public Instruction partnering with Planned Parenthood to train the state’s teachers about sex education, this is needed reform. It would make our entire education system – from elementary education through college education – more politically accountable.
