House committee to discuss school turnaround tomorrow

The House Public Education Committee has an interim hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. tomorrow, April 22, at the Texas State Capitol.

The committee will review strategies for improving student achievement at “chronically underperforming schools.” In addition to looking at school turnaround methods, committee members will discuss issues surrounding “alternative governance of underperforming schools.” ATPE Lobbyist Monty Exter will be testifying at the hearing.

Tomorrow’s meeting is in response to an interim charge issued by Lt. Gov. Dewhurst directing the committee to review certain issues in anticipation of the 84th legislative session next year. Watch live or archived video of the hearing here.
