State lawmakers are considering a bill that would hold back third-grade students who don't pass the reading portion of their MEAP tests.
The bill is designed to make reading a top priority for schools and students but opponents say it's an unfair and unreasonable benchmark.
If the measure were in place last year, roughly one-third of all Michigan third graders would have been held back.
News 10's Lorne Fultonberg talked to the state board of education and will have a full report tonight at eleven.
