Sen. Stanislawski comments on successful veto override for bill modifying the Reading Sufficiency Act

Sen. Gary Stanislawski, R-Tulsa, is Vice-Chair of the Senate Education Committee, and is the Senate author of a measure modifying Oklahoma’s Reading Sufficiency Act. He issued the following statement following Wednesday’s override of Gov. Fallin’s veto of House Bill 2625.

“I’m very grateful for the overwhelming support of this bill by my fellow members of the Senate. This will retain the high standards set out to make sure Oklahoma students are learning to read at the appropriate level, but the decision that a child needs to be held back won’t come down to a single high-stakes test. It allows for a series of assessments throughout the school year, and gives our local schools, professional educators and parents greater input.”

The Senate voted 45-2 to override HB 2625 following a House vote of 79-17.
