Mich. Schools May Abandon Color Scale

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - It's only been around for two months, but lawmakers are talking about an overhaul to state schools accountability system.

Schools are currently on a color scale. Some lawmakers think an A through F letter grade system would make more sense.

If an A through F letter grade system is adopted like students have, the same lawmakers feel this will allow parents to easily understand the performance of the schools.

Hearings are expected to begin in the House.

Among other US states, there are already 15 where schools are evaluated with a letter system, instead of the color system.
