Legislative-control fights up ante on K-12 policy
from Education Week
The fate and scope of state education policy changes passed in the last two years may well hinge on a few hotly contested — and precariously balanced — legislatures this fall, in an election cycle that will see 44 states with lawmakers going before the voters. In states such as Iowa and Wisconsin, where statehouse control is split between Republicans and Democrats, the stakes are immediate and concrete: a chance to extend, or scale back, dramatic changes in areas such as collective bargaining, school choice and teacher accountability enacted after the GOP wave that swept over states in 2010.
