CAPITOL WATCH
Feb. 25: Risks of Read-or-Fail Law

State Capitol - Jan 2014 - 2

State Rep. Mike Shelton talks on Capitol Watch Video about his bill, HB 2565, that would delay implementation of the Reading Sufficiency Act, which requires third graders to pass a standardized reading test to advance to fourth grade. This year’s third graders will be the first to be held to that requirement. Shelton’s bill would restart the run-up to high-stakes testing to allow schools and teachers to better prepare students to improve their reading skills.
