Area School Leaders Way in on Governor's Education Plans

Governor Bob Mcdonnell has lofty plans on how to measure school accountability in the coming years. 
Many of his proposals are before the 2013 General Assembly and Virginia school leaders are weighing in on the outcome. Stafford County Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Chris Quinn says the plan to return to and A through F grading system could work, since it is something kids and parents already understand. Already, states like Louisiana and Florida use such a system. 
When asked if too much decision making is shifting from the local to state level, Quinn says it depends. He says as long as new programs are implemented in a smart way, he will take the trade off for guaranteed state education funding.
According to the latest Education Week's Quality Counts report card, Virginia schools rank fourth overall in the nation.
