Lawmakers Reinstate Writing Test, But Not Money To Pay For It

Illinois lawmakers will once again require high school juniors to be tested on their writing skills.  But educators say it’s the lawmakers who need a crash course… in math. 


They’re complaining that the legislature reinstated the testing requirement… but didn’t approve any funds to pay for the cost of conducting and scoring the tests, estimated at around $2.5 million dollars.  The State Board of Education says it may seek a supplemental appropriation to cover those costs.
