Senator proposes K-20 committee to coordinate education



Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, is proposing legislation (SB2418) to require education leaders from K-12 through college to better coordinate their programs and budget practices, through a committee that would work to improve students' success in moving from grade school to a college diploma.

The Articulation Coordinating Committee would include members of the K-12, community college, state university, career and technical education, and "non-public" education systems. At least one student would sit on the committee.

Lynn chairs the Senate Higher Education appropriations committee.
