Thousands of Michigan Third-Graders Could Be Held Back Due to Reading Scores

A new study by Michigan State University says more kids might get held back when new reading standards go into effect.

The research found between 2% and 5% of third-graders do not meet those requirements.

This means up to one kid in every third grade class might have to repeat the grade level.

The study estimates this could impact up to 2,500 students.

Michigan’s new literacy requirements go into full effect this upcoming school year.
