Still Talking Michigan Senate Bill 619

It looks like the final decision on Senate Bill 619 – the bill designed to remove all restrictions related to cyber charter schooling in the State of Michigan – may be coming this week.  There was testimony on yesterday, with a couple of news items coming from that testimony:

As most of you know, this is a piece of legislation I feel strong about and you can see those sentiments in these previous entries:

Last week I posted a follow-up entry on the bill (see More On Michigan Senate Bill 619). That second entry pointed to an article entitled “Cyber school cap could go: State Sen. Phil Pavlov supports lifting restriction,” and in particular the comments people had left.

Anyway, it appears that there will be another session of testimony this coming week sometime and then they’ll decide what they are going to do with the bill. As legislators get ready to decide what to do about this awful piece of legislation pushed by the neo-liberal and neo-conservative proponents of K-12 online learning, I wanted to share some more recent articles on the bill.

Some more food for thought on the subject…
