In addition to voting for candidates for president next March 3rd, Alabama voters will decide YES or NO on a constitutional amendment as to whether to switch from the present elected state board of education to one appointed by the governor.
If approved, the amendment gives the governor the authority to select a nine-member Alabama Commission on Elementary and Secondary Education. Appointments would have to be confirmed by the state senate. Members would serve staggered six-years terms. They would appoint a state education secretary.
The proposal also includes a directive for the new commission to set new standards to replace Common Core curriculum standards.
