It took an all-day session, but Governor Bobby Jindal’s Education Reform Bill received passage from the House of Representatives.

After more than 12 hours debate, the House approved a 45-page bill creating a statewide voucher plan. It will make it easier to create charter schools and allow parents to vote to have failing schools moved into the Recovery School District.

The bill also ties public school teacher job security to student performance measures while eliminating seniority protections, or tenure, for teachers when financially strapped school systems face layoffs.

The bill now heads to the State Senate for debate.
