MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Tennessee lawmakers grilled the state education commissioner Wednesday after a disastrous roll out of TNReady assessments for students--a roll out the state says was deliberately attacked.
Education Commissioner Candice McQueen told lawmakers she would reach out to the Davidson County District Attorney to ask for an investigation into the attack that delayed testing for hours Tuesday, which comes as criticism from lawmakers grows.
"Where we are with the testing? We are running into hiccups, but we've all worked together through the hiccups and moved on. You don't call for the resignation of a commissioner that's given four years of her life to this," Rep. Mark White (R-Memphis) said.
