LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - When it comes to books, Michigan lawmakers continue debate on a bill that would hold back third graders who don't pass the state reading test.
Last year, 33,000 third graders were not proficient on the test, which is one third of all of the students in that grade.
A House committee continues to hear testimony on the proposal. A parent's advocate told lawmakers on Wednesday schools need more money.
A report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation shows by the age of eight, less than 35 percent of students are on track with the cognitive knowledge and skills they need to be a successful adult.
