The Texas House this morning gave final approval to sweeping education overhaul bill. HB5 passed on third reading, after nearly nine hours of heated debate and 165 proposed amendments, Tuesday.

The law is designed to shift the focus from college-readiness only to include more vocational training. It scales back the number of standardized tests high school students are required to pass from 15 to five. It also does away with Algebra II and other advanced math and science classes.
