A new law will give parents the option of exempting their children from the Move On When Reading law, which calls for third-graders whose reading scores fall “far below” average on a statewide assessment to not advance to fourth grade.

Saying that could discourage children with dyslexia, a state lawmaker pressed for the law providing students with the learning disability an opportunity to move on regardless.
