Too Young to Test bill passes on the Senate floor! Now it's the House's turn!
Last week the full Senate voted on the Too Young to Test bill, and it passed with broad bipartisan support, 53-2, with only Senators Curran (R-Downers Grove) and Plummer (R-Vandalia) voting no. (Roll call here.)
But this bill is facing more opposition in the House from the IL State Board of Education because they are very eager to expand the state testing system into K-2.
