RI Senate OKs NECAP moratorium

May 14, 2014

PROVIDENCE – With local lawmakers casting three of the five dissenting votes, the RI Senate on Wednesday passed legislation to halt the use of high-stakes standardized tests as a high school graduation requirement until 2017.
The measure, by West Warwick Sen. Adam Satchell, a Democrat, passed on a vote of 29-5, but that may be as far as it goes this year at least. Larry Berman, spokesman for House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello, said efforts to stop the use of the tests as a graduation requirement will not come up for a vote in that chamber this year.
