EAST TEXAS ó State Representative Matt Schaefer, District 6, is in deep discussion about House Bill number 5 at the State Capital. Schaefer told KETK, right now, the way the school systemís are evaluated, is not realistic and things need to change. He said this education reform bill would take the number of standardized testing required for end of course exams down from 15 to 5. He says that reduces the emphasis on standardized testing. It also would change the way schools are graded. Schaefer says the discussion is ongoing.
