A new Michigan law eliminates a requirement that teachers take the SAT, the standardized test commonly used in college admissions.
The test was required for people who wanted to become certified to teach in Michigan. But critics say it's not a good indicator of a successful teacher.
Sen. Marty Knollenberg, a Republican from Troy, says the SAT doesn't measure enthusiasm, passion or competency in a certain subject. He says it can be another hurdle to getting people into the teaching profession.
