Re:      HB 212 summary and update
The House Education Committee held proponent testimony today on House Bill (HB) 212, legislation sponsored by Rep. Andy Thompson (R-Marietta), that seeks to remove several education reform initiatives adopted in recent years. Among other changes, it also would replace the current state assessments from either Iowa or Massachusetts administered prior to 2010.
