Ed panels hold open ‘listening session’ today from 4-6 p.m.

The House and Senate Education committees have scheduled a joint "listening session" in the Capitol Auditorium from 4 to 6 p.m. today; anyone who would like to testify is asked to limit their comments to 3 minutes, and to submit a written copy for the record. A similar session was held Feb. 1 from 8-10:30 a.m. and drew 200 people to comment to lawmakers on education issues, with most focusing on charter school funding and attempts to limit teacher collective bargaining. The second session was scheduled, according to House Education Chairman Reed DeMordaunt, to accommodate those who couldn't attend the early-morning session, including teachers.
