Lt. Governor suggests nixing law needing ACT

CLOSE Mayor Tim Burchett held a press conference with parents and Bearden High School students to call out ACT for refusing to release Bearden High School students' test scores.

Lt. Guv Randy McNally (R-Oak Ridge) joined his voice with students and moms and dads of students impacted by an ACT decision to cancel test ratings.

"I am incredibly disappointed that ACT rejected Bearden High School's attract have their scores licensed," McNally said. "These test results are crucial for students making strategies to go to college. It is just unacceptable to have their difficult work discarded through no fault of their own."

ACT rejected a Tennessee Department of Education appeal last week to release the test scores of 409 Bearden High School students after the organization canceled them since they sent the wrong tests to the school.

Burchett said he was in talks with Governor Expense Haslam and the Attorney general of the United States's office about potential courses of action.

McNally stated he too prepares to talk with education officials about potential remedies.

"If the ACT can not discover a method to be reasonable to our students, we will need to look at changing the law that consists of the ACT as a standard for college admission," McNally said.
