A bill that says a Tennessee teacher's license cannot be revoked based on student test scores has passed the full house. The bill is sponsored by Representative Matthew Hill of Jonesborough.
It passed with unanimous support from state lawmakers.
Recently, the state board eliminated teacher licenses based on college degrees and professional training, using instead a statistical estimate of student test scores.
Still, some people oppose the plan, including teachers, parents, and school administrators across the state.
The bill now heads to the state senate.
