Stop the administration from making up their own set of rules. We fought too hard to have the administration making up rules as they want. If it is not require by law, we are not required to teach it.
This is a bogeyman that seems inherent in every piece of legislation... the phrase "the agency shall promulgate rules..." which alleviates the legislature from having to get down to the nickel, dime and cent level for everything.
From the School Code:
The Committee will be responsible for developing policy on matters of mutual concern to elementary, secondary and higher education...
From the Environmental Protection Act:
The Agency is authorized to promulgate such regulations and enter into such contracts as it may deem necessary...
From the Wildlife Code
The Department is authorized to make rules and regulations for carrying out, administering and enforcing the provisions of this Act...
And of course my favorite, the Police Training Act:
The Board may make, amend and rescind such rules and regulations as may be necessary to carry out the provisions of this Act...
So basically they give a blank check (or rather rulebook) to whatever entity they saddle with administering their new law, and let them use the obscurity of JCAR to flesh out the concept that is the law.
Kind of like someone buying a piece of property and telling their crew "build me a house" (or a bank, or a grocery store) but not caring how many rooms it has, what color it is or how many stories.
They probably figure as long as the rules are vaguely connected to "carry(ing) out the provisions" of the law, it can withstand any potential challenge and thus is GTG.
Plus, their checkbook is bigger than most of the little people. They can always out-litigate any troublemakers.
