California lawmakers have voted to prohibit a controversial practice by Kennedy and Cypress High Schools that required students to carry color-coded ID cards and notebooks based on their standardized test scores, the LA Times reports. The state Senate voted 34-2 to pass AB 1166, a bill proposed by Democratic state Sen. Jose Solorio that prohibits schools from tethering information about student test scores to "any object a pupil may be required to carry while at school."
