Top GOP lawmaker says state not ready for number of failing third graders

As the time nears for statewide testing of Ohio third graders who are now required to be proficient in reading, one top Republican lawmaker has made a dire prediction.

“I’m not sure the state is prepared, I’m not sure our schools are prepared, but it’s going to happen,” said state senator Peggy Lehner, chair of the senate Education Committee. “It’s going to be a tough year.”

Starting this year, students who don’t pass the third grade reading proficiency test will be held back.

I find this news pure schadenfreude. Peggy Lehner went out of her way to change the metrics so that Kettering Government Schools would receive excellent scores when they would have been lower than expected. The only thing different in this situation is that she wasn’t in tears as she was on past legislation.
