Senator Plans to Propose Reading Test To Enter Fourth Grade

Posted: Updated:

An Omaha state senator is preparing legislation that would bar students from entering fourth grade if they fail reading proficiency tests in the third grade.

Senator Scott Lautenbaugh said that if students don't have a strong foundation in reading they won't be able to succeed in other areas.

This is just one of several education proposals the senator plans to introduce in the 2014 legislative session.

Some educators think the idea of holding back a third-grader only because he or she didn't pass a reading test is misguided and too simplistic.
