There were 46 House education proposals that failed this session and 19 in the Senate didn’t make it through. Additionally, four tax-related education proposals failed (three in the House and one in the Senate). Some bills never did make it past go. In end, there remained 17 House and 8 Senate education proposals that were opened and numbered but never fleshed out with text.
