Amendment One - Thanks, Hatcher Hurd.
November 02, 2012 | 02:38 PM

With all due respect to "Not Telling the Truth," Mr. Hurd is correct. (Thank you, Mr. Hurd.) I refer you to the associated legislation, HB 797 which has some real "gotchas." Mr. "not telling the truth" need only refer to lines 187-191 of HB 797 to find that these new charter schools, enabled by this legislation, do NOT have to have certified teachers (just their version of "highly trained,") nor do they have to be US citizens. Also, there is no spending cap on this legislation. As a taxpayer, I am voting NO and encourage you to do the same. I don't plan to give this unelected duplicate board a blank check.

187 (1) Seek highly qualified, properly trained teachers and other qualified personnel for
188 such schools; provided, however, that such schools shall give preference to hiring an
189 individual who is a citizen or national of the United States over another individual who
190 is not a citizen or national of the United States if the two individuals are equally qualified,
191 unless a teacher is a foreign exchange teacher..."
