May 6, 2024 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

A good bit of education-related legislation moved forward last week. The Senate approved a bill to create the state’s first health-focused high school. A bill restricting instruction on LGBTQ topics in public schools passed the House.  And a bill designed to ensure Alabama students are taught the dangers of fentanyl was approved by the Senate and now awaits Governor Ivey’s signature.
