A possible change to Missouri state schools has schools and organizations arguing against the proposed amendment.

Amendment 3 will change the focus of individualized learning in schools to focus more on state mandated standardized testing and teacher evaluation systems. The amendment wants to increase the number of state mandated standardized tests. This action will remove necessary classroom materials in order to fund the tests.

A second person will be filing for the vacant Ward 5 position on the Columbia City Council.
