Some House banter over new schools grading system.
A Legislative push to change the new law requiring an A to F grading system for public schools.
Association of Professional Oklahoma Educators Executive Director Ginger Tinney thinks the system could set-up some schools for failure. She questions why a school must score higher than 93-point-75 to qualify for an 'A' grade:
"If the purpose was to make it understandable, then to make it understandable is ninety to one-hundred. Everybody knows that," Tinnery told a House committee.
But Oklahoma Department of Education spokesman Damon Gardenhire says A to F should stand as is.
"We've have a law that's on the books, and we're going to move forward with that. If we don't have the rules in place, we'll have to continue to implement the law regardless of that," Gardenhire said.
A House Joint Resolution to disapprove the A to F system passed the House Administrative Rules and Government Oversight Committee. It now goes to the House floor.
