Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has vetoed a bill that would have given teachers more freedom in using daily planning periods.
Tomblin said in a veto letter that the bill would have prevented teachers and principals from collaboratively planning their instructional days.
Tomblin also said the bill would have imposed more costs on county school boards.
State lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the legislation.
