Many school principals require parents to separate twins despite the lack of research, Robinson said.
The proposed law would allow parents of multiples to request school principals to place their children in the same classroom or in different classrooms. Schools would have to honor the request unless it would be disruptive or force the school to add an additional classroom.
“We keep telling parents we want them involved in their children’s education. In this case when parents got involved … they were told, ‘You’re wrong,'” said Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, author of the Senate bill.
You mean school officials would override parents even if they don’t have any basis to? No kidding.
