The retooled school reform plan…

Here's a link to my full story at on the retooled version of state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna's school reform plan that was introduced today; it makes no change in the most controversial provision: Raising class sizes and cutting hundreds of teaching jobs. Instead, Luna proposed reducing his requirement for online classes for every high-school student from six classes to four; more flexibility for school districts to decide in what year students should be given laptop computers, rather than requiring them to go to all 9th graders; and elimination of the clause requiring that students be given ownership of the laptops when they graduate.
