March 9, 2020 Group Watch: AL Votes “No” on Amendment On

Alabama voters overwhelmingly saidĀ “no” to amendment one last week, voting it down decisively, meaningĀ the state will not do away with its elected school board. The amendment would have replaced the elected state school board with an appointed commission tasked with coming up with an alternative to Common Core curriculum standards. If the amendment had passed, Ivey would have appointed all nine members of the Alabama Commission on Elementary and Secondary Education. The members would have been confirmed by the Alabama Senate and would have served six year staggered terms. A state education secretary would have replaced the state superintendent. The secretary would have been appointed by the commission and confirmed by the Senate.
