Nebraska education officials would have authority to change the administration of poor performing schools under a bill near passage in the legislature.
Speaker Greg Adams of York sponsored the measure that gives the State Education Commissioner more clout to act when a school lags behind. . .

 
Adams says the state, at present, has no authority to intervene when a school district performs poorly.

Senator Scott Lautenbaugh of Omaha is skeptical the legislation will solve the problems of poor performing school districts. . .

 
The school accountability bill has passed two rounds of voting. If it clears a third, it goes to the governor.
