Op-ed Article by Representatives Dolan and Stonier

Here’s a good op-ed from two state representatives that supports WSPTA’s Resolution18.13, which says no single factor should determine a student’s advancement such as graduation from high school. HB 1046, the bill that has passed the state House three times by a wide bipartisan margin, would still require the statewide tests for federal accountability but would remove the link between passing the assessments and graduation. WSPTA supports the passage of HB 1046 and encourages members to reach out to their senators to encourage a vote on the bill.
