Senator Jamilah Nasheed’s
Education Legislation to Take Effect

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, today (8-27) released a statement regarding Senate Bill 125 and the future of Missouri students.

“I am gratified to see the culmination of what has been many years of hard work and dedication on behalf of SB 125. By not only closing previous loopholes in legislation relating to unaccredited school districts, allowing many students the opportunity for alternative schooling choices, but also streamlining the process of relieving an inefficient teacher of duty, we help provide St. Louis students, and students across Missouri, with a brighter educational future.”
