Bad-Bill Watch: HB 400 (“Mandate Relief”)

HB 400, the bill to gut class-size caps, cut teachers’ pay, and tamper with teachers’ contract protections, has yet to return to the House calendar after a failed effort to pass it last week. We encourage you to keep those calls and letters coming to block this bill, which would use a temporary revenue crisis as the excuse for permanent, adverse changes in state education standards and policy.
