Michigan Could Link School Accreditation to Test Scores

Under a new proposal some Michigan schools could lose accreditation if their standardized test scores aren't up to speed. A new proposal in Lansing wants to link school accreditation to standardized test scores. If the standards pass a handful of public schools could lose Michigan state accreditation. Education officials say the change would help them identify failing schools that need support and intervention. The new proposal still needs approval from the state House and Senate education committees.
