The Texas School Alliance is opposed to the removal of grading floors, which prohibit school districts from awarding less than a certain percentage to a student for a grade. These range from 50 to as high as 70 percent. According to a spokesperson, doing so would infringe upon local control of schools and remove a safety net for weaker students and for students transitioning between schools.
The alliance lost, however, as the Texas Senate voted that school districts could no longer require a minimum grade for students.
