LITTLE ROCK, AR  --  The Little Rock School District superintendent is presenting a controversial plan to change a successful reading program. That will happen at a special school board meeting tonight.

The current program allows for one-on-one tutoring in certain schools. Dr. Dexter Suggs wants to change that to group teaching sessions when three to nine students participate.

Some of the current reading instructors will be reassigned or potentially lose their jobs.

Many parents say the current programs have been successful and they don't want it changed.
