State Representative Introduces Legislation to Increase Reading Proficiency

UNDATED (WHTC) -- Michigan State Representative Amanda Price introduced legislation on Tuesday to improve third-grade reading proficiency.  Price said in a press release, “Reading proficiency is one of the most important measurements in public education, and it is time we make this a top priority for our students.”  She also said, “Similar legislation has proven effective in Florida and other states.”  In 2012, nearly one third of third-graders did not meet the minimum reading proficiency benchmark, but less than one percent of 113-thousand third-grades in Michigan were retained in their public school.
