Education Reform Talks Picking Up Pace

Senator Amy Sinclair is hoping a corner has been turned on education reform negotiations. She tells KNIA/KRLS News that she was frustrated for the first two weeks of conference committee talks. Democrats and Republicans traded proposals Thursday after an original Republican proposal sat on the table for more than a week. Sinclair said during last Friday’s legislative coffee session in Knoxville that it’s important for her that teacher accountability measures stay intact in any compromise.
