(KTTS News) – The Missouri Senate is considering a bill that would help elementary school students catch up on their reading skills.

State Senator Cindy O’Laughlin of Shelbina said her bill would require the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to develop reading goals for students based on their test scores at the beginning of the year.

Matt Michelson of the Missouri State Teachers Association says he likes the bill, but says the MSTA would like to see some local control remain.

The Missouri News Network reports that three groups of teachers have spoken out in favor of the bill.

Nobody spoke against it.
