School law preserved

Posted By on Mon, Apr 6, 2009 at 1:12 PM

Despite a plea to be able to count seasonal increases in students from migrant farm workers, the Senate Education Committee was unmoved today. It declined to approve a bill to give school districts wiggle room in the 350-student minimum enrollment standard.

UPDATE: An observer reports that payback was swift. The Education Department, which has fought to preserve school standards ( the Supreme Court, after all, has been pretty insistent to date), saw its appropriation beaten later in Joint Budget. Gov. Beebe is going to have to sort this out.
