EOG’s to go bye-bye?

Stokes County Rep. Bryan Holloway has staked out a common sense position in his years in the state legislature. In addition to first-class constituent services, Holloway seems to understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to education:

For North Carolina students, end of grade tests are "designed to measure student performance on the goals, objectives, and grade-level competencies." But some lawmakers speculate their effectiveness.

“I just do not think that these test measure the data that we presume that it does,” said Rep. Bryan Holloway, a Stokes County Republican.

Holloway has introduced a bill aimed at getting rid of any non-federally mandated standardized test. That means four end of grade tests would be eliminated: Algebra II, Physical Science, U.S. History, and Civics and Economics.
