MANKATO (TEC News) – Legislators are meeting a few times this week to discuss a bill that would modify current education policies and the financial means to do so. Bill 1151 includes lots of areas including educators and early childhood, but also includes student accountability such as the standardized testing. Representative Paul Marquart teamed up with DFLer Kathy Brynaert to introduce a bill that would modify testing to include an area called 'The Grad,' which helps with the next steps after high school. Brynaert comments:
Kathy 9 "their coursework" :15
Brynaert feels this would be a great addition, once passed.
