House education bill faces Dayton opposition
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota representatives voted early today to make dramatic education changes after a six-hour debate.
The governor does not like many of the bill's provisions.
The House passed the Republican-proposed changes 68-59 in a bill that replaces teacher tenure with basing pay on an evaluation that includes student performance. Teachers traditionally are paid based on their years of service, something Republicans who control the House and Senate strongly oppose.
