A significant piece of Gov. Bob McDonnell's 2012 education agenda died at the hands of the Virginia Senate Thursday, as the body voted 23-17 to send a bill that would make it easier to fire new teachers and principals back to committee, killing it for the year.
House Republicans on Monday morning pre-emptively protested the Virginia Education Association and the Virginia PTA, touting their own education proposals that have been roundly denounced by the teachers' groups, which later gathered for their traditional "lobby day" at the Capitol.
