Parent-Teacher Conference

Recently, I have been subscribing to a daily news update service for the happenings at the Statehouse.  I found yesterday's report on the new bills which were introduced quite interesting.  Here is what caught my eye:

HB109 PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE (WILLIAMS S) To require parents of students enrolled in school districts rated continuous improvement or lower to attend a parent-teacher conference.


This bill was referred to the Education Committee. 
 
This daily report is very interesting.  Take a look for yourself:
