A bill to reform Oklahoma's A to F grading system for public schools must now pass the governor's scrutiny.
The bill would tabulate schools' grades the same as students' grades.
But some Democrats, like Representative Mike Shelton of Oklahoma City, want the whole A to F concept scrapped.
"You put icing on a cow patty, when you cut into it, you've got a problem. And that's exactly what you have here. There's nothing that's going to make this work."
Representative Jason Nelson of Oklahoma City is among supporters who say the current A to F system is as effective as the old Academic Performance Index.
"This is a sound system. You can go look at what API measured versus what this measured. You'll find that it reflects good schools and bad schools in both measurements, about the same."
The bill passed 55 to 36 in the House and goes up for the test of Governor Fallin's approval.
