A Move Toward Accountability

Yesterday the Senate Committee on Ways and Means released S. 2085, “An Act Relative to Improving Accountability and Oversight of Education Collaboratives”, which is intended to establish greater oversight and transparency for educational collaboratives. The bill follows extensive exploration by the Joint Committee on Education of the potential for improprieties in this segment of our educational system. Amendments to the bill must be filed by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and it will be debated in a formal session of the Senate on Tuesday, January 10th.

A summary of the bill from the Senate Committee on Ways and Means is posted below.
