Bill proposes state takeover of campuses
Senate Bill 1718 (West) proposes that the state would take over campuses that are underperforming on state tests for 3 consecutive years. Using a poorly-fundtioning model pioneered in Louisiana, Texas would form the "Texas Achievement District," which would take responsibility for the campuses away from local school districts. In many (if not most) cases, the schools would be given to charter entities to manage. Please contact your senator and voice your opposition to this bad plan for school improvement.
