LEON, WV — Gov. Jim Justice held a signing ceremony today for four education-related bills passed by the West Virginia Legislature. The ceremony took place in front of a packed gym full of students at Leon Elementary School.
“For our students to succeed, they have to feel safe and loved,” Gov. Justice said. “This legislation further improves our students' safety and will help raise our literacy and numeracy numbers by putting more aides in classrooms. For our older students, we’re making it easier to get them college ready by removing barriers for advanced education. Education is our centerpiece in West Virginia, and these bills make that focus even clearer. Today is a great day for West Virginia."
