Maureen Stapleton (D) on July 18, 2012, to require a public school district to get the written consent of a parent or guardian before placing a child in a classroom with a teacher who is rated “ineffective” on his or her most recent year-end evaluation, as defined by a system the state is developing following enactment of a 2011 teacher tenure reform law.
Referred to the House Education Committee on July 18, 2012.
