Third-grade gate

Regarding the article “More than half fail reading test” (May 23):

Saying that these children failed the test is very misleading. Makes it sound like the children are unable to read at all.

They need to score Level 3 to proceed to fourth grade. That means the children who “failed” can probably read but just need to improve their scores for the sake of the legislators in Jackson.
