The House Education Committee will take up the Education Improvement Act of 2013 this morning at the legislature.

NC Policy Watch’s Lindsay Wagner has a great piece here on how House Bill 719 differs from the education reform plan offered in the state Senate.

Rep. Rick Glazier, a primary sponsor on HB 719, talked with Chris Fitzsimon over the weekend on News and Views about teacher pay and the idea of an A-F grading system for North Carolina’s public schools.
