Stephenson, however, said he sees no better group of people to review curriculum complaints than the committee, which is already familiar with the standards.
"It will be an independent body, not people who have a vested interest, not those who are defending the system but parents who are, many of them, actually critical of the system," Stephenson said. "That's a perfect panel to hear complaints and then give a response concerning those complaints."
But some committee members feel there are simply too many problems with the bill, including that it was rushed.
The bill didn't have its first hearing until the last two weeks of the session, and then had one Senate floor vote and one House floor vote — a path that skipped some of the typical steps.
