Michigan is considering dropping its A-F school quality ranking system.

The state has two systems of reporting school quality to the public. Bridge Michigan reports that House Democrats are proposing a bill that would end one of them, which was passed during a lame-duck session of the Legislature in 2018.

The system of report card-style grades is reportedly less popular among educators than the 1-100 system.

Tuesday’s committee meeting heard a call for a solution that will hold schools accountable, help low-performing schools, and allow everyday parents to understand if their local school is doing well.
