Committee acts on little-used parliamentary tool, but effort still has a ways to travel
What it is: Assembly Concurrent Resolution 215 (ACR 215)
Prime sponsors: State Assemblywomen Mila Jasey and Marlene Caride
What it does: Employing a little-used parliamentary tool, the concurrent resolution demands that the State Board of Education reverse its move last August to require New Jersey high school students to pass certain sections of PARCC in order to graduate, starting with the Class of 2021. The measure overwhelmingly passed the Assembly education committee this week and moves next to the full Assembly. It has yet to be posted in the Senate.
