New State Law Would Fail 3rd Graders Who Can’t Read [Video]

If a new piece of legislation were in place right now, almost 37,000 3rd grade students in our state would not advance into the 4th grade.

See what Lansing is considering right now.

A new piece of legislation introduced in Lansing would hold back 3rd grade students who fail their state reading test. Last year, one third of Michigan’s 3rd grade students weren’t proficient in that area of their MEAP test.

Backers of the new bill argue that it’s unfair to advance poor readers into the 4th grade. Opponents of the new bill would like to focus instead on providing extra help and support for those who struggle to read and worry about their self-esteem if they are held back from the rest of their class.
