The current statewide education strike is over, with schools to be open Thursday.

Students will be returning to school.

A number of important and popular initiatives in the Omnibus Education Bill appears to have died with it.

The pay raise bill for teachers is expected to come up during the next two days.

Kelli Whytsell, Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Kelli Whytsell, said she is still trying to get Senate Bill 125 moving.

It is currently in the Senate Education Committee. This is the bill that would fund all counties under 1400 student enrollment, about eleven who are currently suffering from financial problems under the current school aid funding formula.

Whytsell said it was included as part of SB 451 that was recently killed to in the House, saying she has emailed representatives and the Senate Education Committee stressing the importance of SB 125 to the 11 small rural counties with net enrollment under 1400.

The Herald was unable to obtain information regarding other key issues of concern with Calhoun teachers and service personnel.
