Alabama

Governor

Governor Robert J. Bentley (R)

Robert J. Bentley

Since in office, Gov. Bentley signed into law that state’s tax credit-funded tuition scholarship bill for certain students who attend failing schools. On charter schools, Governor Bentley signed Alabama’s first charter bill into law in 2015, which permits the establishment of up to 10 charter schools per year over a five-year period, however, while in the state legislature he voted against charter school legislation. Similarly, while he has publicly expressed support for performance-based pay and helped revise the longevity-only aspects of tenure for school principals, Gov. Bentley stands by the current tenure system for teachers, saying it is “not that bad right now.” Bentley signed into law legislation that brought tax credit options to students and families.
