Tom and Litzow pass bad bills, do nothing to reduce class sizes

Instead of increasing school funding or reducing overcrowded class sizes, Senate Majority Caucus Leader Rodney Tom and Senate education committee Chairman Sen. Steve Litzow led efforts to pass a series of bad education bills.

For example, Senate Bill 5242 allows school districts to fire teachers who are displaced from their current positions -- an attack on due process, collective bargaining and basic fairness. 

Sen. Tom also sponsors Senate Bill 5856, which eliminates existing pension plans for state and public school employees, replacing them with a risky 401(k)-style savings account. All new public employees, and all current public employees under the age of 45, would be forced into the new savings account, Please oppose SB 5856.
