Gov. Tomblin seeks grading system for schools

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin wants an A-through-F grading system for the state’s public schools.

It was one of the proposals he mentioned in Wednesday’s State of the State address. Tomblin said it would be a better, more understandable way to measure school achievement and will help engage communities in their schools.

He also said he wants schools to emphasis science, technology, engineering and math courses to better prepare people for a workforce that demands those skills.

And while it’s a tight budget year, Tomblin wants to give teachers a 2 percent pay raise.
