The Wisconsin State Journal reported Tuesday that the Republican-authored bill would also make significant changes to the current K-12 school accountability system, including assigning letter grades to schools.
The bill would also require testing for taxpayer-subsidized students at private voucher schools and prohibit the lowest-performing schools from enrolling new voucher students. Participating private schools also could test all students for accountability purposes.
The changes would go into effect in the 2015 school year.
The Senate Education Committee was scheduled to vote Thursday on the latest version of the bill.
