OHIO Gov. John Kasich (R) signs SB 216, which makes dozens of changes to the Buckeye State education system, including how teachers are evaluated, allowing third-graders to take tests on paper, softening the law on excessive absences and creating a Joint Education Oversight Committee to study online charter schools (CLEVELAND.COM).
MASSACHUSETTS Gov. Charlie Baker (R) amends SB 2631, a bill that would establish standards for civic education in the Bay State, and returns it to lawmakers. Baker’s amendment would require that a voter registration program and hands-on civics project mandated by the bill be non-partisan (MASSLIVE.COM).
