Parent Grading Bill Headed to Tennessee House Floor
Tennessee parents would grade themselves on how involved they are in a student's school performance under legislation headed for a state House floor vote. The measure passed the House Finance Committee Tuesday on a voice vote. The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the Senate Education Committee. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Louisiana is currently considering legislation to grade parent participation. Utah passed legislation last month creating an online survey where parents can evaluate their own involvement, but the school does not assign them a grade and it's voluntary. Another proposal encouraging school districts to develop a parental involvement contract has gone to Governor Bill Haslam for his consideration.
