State of Texas: In Depth – Standardized testing

AUSTIN (KXAN) – This week, lawmakers in the Texas House approved a plan to let students graduate even if they do not pass all of their standardized exams. A student could fail two out of the five STAAR tests and still get their diploma, as long as they get the green light from a panel of teachers, counselors, parents, and principals.

Erin Cargile had State rep. Jason Isaac (R-New Braunfels) in the studio today to talk about standardized testing and education in Texas. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
