Two months after Michigan adopted a color-coded system for grading its schools, some officials already are looking to replace the system with one that issues letter grades.

"Nobody knows what a lime green means, but everybody knows what an A means," said House Education Committee Chairwoman Lisa Posthumus Lyons.
