South Carolina lawmakers are considering a bill that would require third-graders to score at grade level on state reading tests or face retention. The third-grade reading mandate is modeled after one in Florida, and the bill's main sponsor, state Sen. Harvey Peeler, R-Gaffney, suggests reallocating some of the $136 million already used to help struggling students to fund reading coaches and other interventions.
