Judicial Inquiry Commission Information

What is JIC? The JIC is the Judicial Inquiry Committee, which functions as a judicial disciplinary system for the State. It was created in December 1973 as part of Amendment 328 to the Constitution of Alabama, and the Alabama Supreme Court consented, through a vote, to its original rules. However, at that time Alabama was a one-party state and JIC disciplinary action was used to police serious judicial misconduct, not to pursue political vendettas.

CSE Activists Meet with Education Commissioner

Texas CSE activists John Hoppe and Margie Raborn joined Texas CSE director Peggy Venable and Carol Jones in meetings with Education Commissioner Jim Nelson and later in the governor's office to express our concern that the middle and high school science textbooks proposed for adoption in Texas - as submitted by publishers - do not embody sound science and do not adhere to the State Constitution. The meetings were productive and informative. CSE activists will continue to review textbooks and the publishers' responses to citizens concerns expressed at the September 6 hearing. The textbooks are available for review at the regional service centers. To locate the service center in your area, click here.

GOV. BILL OWENS TOUTS EDUCATION REFORM IN WASHINGTON

BY David Phinney

Republican Gov. Bill Owens touted Colorado's "school report card" program on Friday, explaining that by grading the performance of schools, the state is fueling a competitive spirit among educators to excel in teaching. Speaking before the Heritage Foundation, an influential conservative think tank, Owens told a sympathetic audience that the grading of schools, combined with the ability of parents to register their children in any public school throughout the state, is "really, really working" because it pressures educators to perform more effectively.
