Meanwhile, the House passed a bill requiring the Legislative Oversight Commission on Education Accountability to follow up with the state Department of Education on seven specified areas.
The state Board of Education is to report to the Education Oversight Commission on this and that by Nov. 1.
The House also changed state code to require school counselors to spend 90 percent of their time with at-risk students, not 75 percent as currently required.
House bills also address legislative rules for highereducation, and dropout prevention in two counties.
The problem, remember, was overregulation.
But the House is right back at it, churning out code that too many bureaucrats will spend too much time requiring local officials to document, thus taking them away from classrooms - where the kids live.
The regulatory impulse is tougher than kudzu. Faced with a report on overregulation, regulators regulate.
