Despite vastly improved tests scores in Tullahoma, less than half of the city’s third graders were found proficient in language arts and now face the specter of being held back a year in school under the state’s recently enacted policy aimed at promoting grade-level reading.

According to state statistics released this week, 41.79 percent of Tullahoma third graders were proficient as evidenced by their TCAP scores – something some parents are finding hard to swallow after their children did well with their reading grades during the school year yet did not make proficiency on the test.
