Will End-of-Grade Testing Pass in Johnston Co.?

Posted August 14, 1997

— In Johnston County, a student's performance on one test could make the difference between one grade and the next. The county's battle over the end of grade testing goes before a judge today.

The judge will hear a request for an injunction on a county school policy. A group of parents has filed a class action suit asking the school board to change the end-of-grade testing rule.

The policy gives third-through-eighth grade students three chances to pass end-of-grade tests each school year. If they fail, they can be held back even if they made A's and B's throughout the school year.
