RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Gov. Bob McDonnell's proposal to grade schools on the same A-to-F scale used for students has barely won General Assembly approval.
Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling cast a tie-breaking vote Tuesday to pass the bill in the 40-member Senate. The Republican-controlled House of Delegates approved the proposal Monday.
McDonnell says an easy-to-understand grading system will encourage more parental involvement in schools. Democratic senators called the measure a gimmick.
Also, the House voted 66-34 to pass an administration-backed bill allowing the state to take over chronically failing schools. Similar legislation is pending in the Senate.
Another key component of McDonnell's education reform agenda has cleared both chambers. It would revamp the teacher evaluation and grievance process.
