Comments from Legislators Following the Adult
Testimony
From Representative Joyce Beatty (Member House
Education Committee) In a question/challenge to
fellow legislative panelists Is there
legislation that we should be looking at?
From Representative Arlene Setzer (Chair, House
Education Committee) In response to
Representative Beatty During this whole
process I was also taking notes and marking
because, as you indicated there have been some
specifics provided to us which we truly need many
times when looking at legislation. And, as most
of you know currently the house and the senate
are working on Senate Bill 2 House Bill 2 which
is for the teacher success and identifying highly
qualified teachers. And within that realm..I am
going to guide that discussion around some of
things that I have heard today about the idea
that teachers need to understand regardless of
what their teaching assignment might be

Comments from Legislators Following the Student
Testimony
From Senator Bill Harris (Chair, Senate Finance
Committee) I listened to the very brave and
courageous young people tell us about things of
their life. And as you were explaining that to us
I am thinking about my sons, I am thinking about
my grandchildren, I am thinking about other
people that I know and some of the struggles that
they have
From Representative Joyce Beatty (Member, House
Education Committee) All of the student panel
members, I dont think I have ever heard anything
so compelling and moving and informative and
educating in my entire life. So let me say to you
thank you and let me give it to you with that
smile that can be comforting because you have
helped us
