Lawsuit filed by AEA to stop signing of flexibility bill | News
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- Governor Bentley's press office says a lawsuit has been filed by the AEA to attempt to stop the signing of House Bill 84, the school accountability and flexibility bill.
Jeremy King with the press office says the Governor plans to sign the bill on Tuesday afternoon. He says the Governor feels the bill is necessary to give parents an alternative to a failing school.
AEA Executive Secretary Henry Mabry has sent a newsletter to members to ask Governor Bentley to veto the bill, which he says was rammed through the Legislature by Republicans. State School Superintendent Tommy Bice and Alabama School Board Head Sally Howell have both asked Governor Bentley to amend the bill and send it back to the Legislature.
