Tennessee House Democrats today asked state education officials to wait 3 years before using the results of state-mandated TN Ready testing against students and teachers. Rep. Antonio Parkinson (D-Memphis) said “the first thing we have to do is make sure the TN Ready testing system is ready before we start holding the students and teachers across the state accountable.” Last week, state education officials revealed that close to 10,000 of the high schools were scored incorrectly by testing company Questar.
