8 VAC 20-720

This amendment should NOT be passed. If this bill is passed yet another edcuational/professional decision will be taking out of a teachers hand.  We are the ones who hold the degress, been trained and work with the studenst on a daily basis. We are the ones who can make the BEST decisons for the learning that takes place and needs to take place in their classrooms. We SHOULD be the ones making the decisions. This is public education! 

The passing of this amendment will create more problems that can be avoided!
