Missouri lawmakers are meeting to find a solution to the Missouri law that states students in unaccredited school districts can transfer to neighboring accredited school districts at the cost of the failing district.
This video features excerpts from the hearing in Saint Louis recently.
Today, our state faces many education problems. Schools are losing accreditation, and students are suffering. The Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri (CEAM) believes all kids should have access to a high-quality education.
On November 17th the Joint Interim Committee on School Accreditation convened to find solutions to Missouri’s problems. At issue was a current law that allows students in an unaccredited district to transfer to any adjacent accredited school district, at the cost of the failing district. This law is on the books . . . yet it is not being enforced.
This is not acceptable. The time to help our kids receive a great education is now. Join CEAM today and learn how you can help.
