Texas Ed: Comments on Education from Texas

December 11, 2006

You can only whistle-blow if you go through channels

Filed under: Accountability, Legislature, Texas — texased @ 8:13 pm

Another case of “you’ve got to wonder why” proposed legislation?

80(R) HB 362 – Introduced version – Bill Text:

� A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT

relating to the ability of public school employees to communicate with members of a school district board of trustees.
�������BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
�������SECTION�1.��Section 11.163, Education Code, is amended by adding Subsection (f) to read as follows:
�������(f)��The employment policy may not restrict the ability of a school district employee to communicate directly with a member of the board of trustees regarding a matter relating to the operation of the district,

The bill is sponsored by Rob Eissler, a former school district board trustee, so I kinda figure he doesn’t believe that board members will be inundated with frivolous issues by district employees. So which districts are trying to make employees go only through organizational channels to control complaints and/or whistle blowing?
