5500: AP via Boston Globe: School leader under pressure to pass literacy exam

The chairman of the [Massachusetts] state Board of Education said Monday that Lawrence superintendent Wilfredo T. Laboy's job would be in jeopardy if he doesn't pass a mandatory literacy test by December.

''If he hasn't passed by then, we'd have to evaluate at that time whether to open up a search for a new superintendent,'' said chairman James Peyser. ''There is certainly a point at which time runs out, and we're approaching that in this case.''
