If you teach in Ohio, you are already familiar with the Third Grade Reading Guarantee! It's great in theory, but is it realistic?
If you are not an Ohioan-would you please leave me a comment explaining what your STATE has done to guarantee that your students are "ON LEVEL" before moving to grade 4?
Do you have a Guarantee?
If so, how does it work?
Do any of your teachers have a "Reading Endorsement?"
Do you retain students for NOT passing State Tests?
If so, how many years can they remain in the same grade?
Please leave me a comment!
