CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's education reform bill was introduced today in both the House of Delegates and the State Senate. The governor's education proposal is aimed at improving student performance by removing barriers in code that stifle local initiatives and ensuring West Virginia students are taught by great teachers.
"As I said in my State of the State address, education reform will be one of my main focuses during this legislative session. Our children deserve the best education possible, and it's up to us to see that our system is providing it," Gov. Tomblin said. "I'm working on education reform from three different angles: working with the legislature, issuing executive orders, and working directly with the State Board of Education. I believe, together, we will give our kids the education they deserve."
