House members begin examining education reform (audio)

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.
