Cuccinelli Wants to Revise Virginia's SOLs

Richmond, VA - Ken Cuccinelli wants to revise the state's SOLs.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate says he will propose to make it less geared to memorized test answers.

The proposals also would allow children in under performing schools to attend charter schools, private schools or other public schools.

The proposals would also create a commission comprised of teachers, parents, lawmakers and college educators to study the tests.

The group would report recommendations to the General Assembly within a year.

Cuccinelli wants greater emphasis on problem-solving abilities than just reciting the answers.
