State lawmakers failed to talk about a bill provision that would eliminate tenured teacher contracts
Wrap: Missouri lawmakers voted to have unaccredited school districts pay to send students to private schools in the area.
Democratic St. Louis County Senator Maria Chapelle-Nadal says her amendment would help students in unaccredited districts attend private schools, charter schools or accredited schools at no extra cost.
|Description: "After the point where a student is not able, because of class size or other restraints, is not able to transfer to another accredited school within the district, that opens everything up."|
But lawmakers failed to talk about one important provision in the bill...
The bill would allow the board in these unaccredited districts to fire teachers and administrators that are tenured.
