House Democrats have unveiled some of their education proposals for this legislative session. Representative Rachel Storch of St. Louis, flanked by several fellow Democrats in the state House unveiled her program called “21st Century Scholars,” under which low-income middle school students would sign a pledge to stay drug and alcohol-free. Other proposals include an exemption for school districts on the 17-cent-a-gallon diesel fuel tax for school busesas well as making sure more money is put into talented and gifted programs. The Representatives at a Capitol news conference say they have bi-partisan support for their ideas and hope to get them passed this session.
