Governor Matt Blunt has signed into law four bills aimed at improving education in the state. One measure would create a “pre through graduate council” consisting of primary, secondary, and higher education officials along with Economic Development officials. Blunt also signed into law a measure that will establish a “virtual school” in the state. It would allow any student in the state to take just about any class offered through the internet. Another piece of legislation that is now law would improve early childhood education in Missouri. The Governor cannot quantify what he will consider success if these measures do what they are supposed to do, but he does say students will be able to better reach their full potential.
