Senate is through the education amendments

The Mass Senate has gotten through the education budget amendments (you can track the actions on amendments on this page) and it looks as though most of the proposed funding increases have failed. The foundation budget commission, as I posted yesterday, passed, but no increase in:
  • McKinney-Vento transportation reimbursement
  • charter school reimbursement
  • regional transportation
  • innovation schools
  • alternative education
  • quality kindergarten
The effort to study the Common Core "curriculum" failed, as did the effort to pause the PARCC test. 
Studying having the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship applying to fees as well as tuition passed, though!
