Senate fails bills on teacher conduct

The Arizona Senate has failed to pass three bills barring educators from partisan instruction, using unapproved course materials or using language in the classroom that violates Federal Communication Commission standards.

A handful of Republicans joined Democrats on a formal Senate vote Tuesday to defeat the measures.

Republican Sen. Lori Klein of Anthem sponsored the proposals and said they’re an effort to increase transparency and make sure teachers are not having an inappropriate influence on children.

Critics argued the bills were unnecessary, heavy-handed and would have put an unfair burden on teachers.
