Subject: From the Department of Redundancy Department

In what is billed as a legislative reaction to the Doc Neace incident, Senator Chip Rogers (R, 21 Woodstock) introduced Senate Bill 9, the meat of it being -

(a) No classroom teacher shall be required, coerced, intimidated, or disciplined in any manner by the local board of education, superintendent, or any local school administrator to change the grade of a student; provided, however, this subsection shall not apply when a teacher has failed to comply with grading policies or rules adopted by the local board of education or written procedures established by an individual school that are applicable to the grading process. A violation of this Code section shall constitute an ethics violation reportable to the Professional Standards Commission pursuant to Part 10 of this article.

Full bill - http://www.legis.ga.gov/legis/2007_08/fulltext/sb9.htm

Does this sound familiar? It should. It already is, and has been, an ethics violation.

505-6-.01(3) (d) Standard 4: Misrepresentation or Falsification
3. falsifying, misrepresenting, omitting or erroneously reporting information regarding the evaluation of students and/or personnel;

It's not that SB9 will hurt anything; it won't make any changes at all. It's simply a waste of legislative time.
