Debate was postponed because other legislation took much longer than expected Monday, and now the Minnesota Senate is set to vote today (Tues) on the Republican majority’s E-12 education funding package.   It’s a fraction of the governor’s proposal, and Maplewood Democrat Chuck Wiger (WEE-ger) says the Republican bill…

…”grossly ignores the needs of public education throughout our state.  We need to do much more.”

Republicans say E-12 education got a big funding increase in the last legislative session.  This time they’re focusing on measures to increase literacy, plus a “Parents’ Bill of Rights” that prohibits “doxing” — and they say gives parents more say in their children’s education.
