The Senate passed a measure Wednesday designed to give students who can't pass a third-grade reading test more options for promotion to the next grade.
House Bill 2625, by Rep. Katie Henke, R-Tulsa, and Sen. Gary Stanislawski, R-Tulsa, returns to the House for consideration. Stanislawski said he anticipates the House will accept Senate amendments and send the measure to Gov. Mary Fallin's desk.
Third-graders this year must pass a reading test to be promoted.
