TillmanSen. Jerry Tillman, Chair Senate Education


A Senate leader on education issues wants to eliminate the requirement for teachers to create plans designed to help students at risk of failing.

Sen. Jerry Tillman, an Archdale Republican, said the “personal education plans,” as they’re called, are an added paperwork burden for teachers. Once the plans are written, they often aren’t used, Tillman said, and good teachers know how to adjust their approach to meet student needs.

“They’re rarely worth the paper they’re written on,” he said.
