A proposal to replace Georgia’s state standardized tests with more frequent, but smaller local tests made headway in the Georgia Senate Wednesday.
Senate Bill 362 establishes a pilot program for school districts to try alternatives to the Georgia Milestones. It passed out of the Senate Education Committee and should soon get a vote on the Senate floor.
“I don’t forsee any problems with it in the Senate,” said its author, Sen. Lindsey Tippins, R-Marietta, the committee chairman. “I don’t know what’s going to happen in the House.”
