The Houston County republican women held their July meeting today.
And they had a special guest, Alabama state school board member Betty Peters.
She told the group about recent changes to education that will affect all schools in the state.
She also mentioned a recent change to g-e-d testing and how it’s no longer under a non-profit company.
"The test rights have been purchased by a for profit in fact it’s the biggest for profit in international education." Alabama school system board member Betty Peters said.

Peters also touched on how k through 12 schools will still be taught cursive writing even though its omitted in the common core curriculum.
