Illinois parents back bill to keep SAT score off transcripts

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Some Illinois parents are backing legislation that would keep students’ SAT scores off their high school transcripts. Illinois law requires transcripts include a student’s score on the state-sponsored exam, which all high school juniors must take. The Chicago Tribune reports some parents say students should have more control over what information a college receives when they apply for admission. Legislation that passed an Illinois Senate committee allows parents to remove the score.
