I didn’t make this up. The Collaborative for Student Success recently posted “The Results Are In: High Standards Are Leading to Better Outcomes.”
It includes a national map showing states that supposedly are doing a more honest job of reporting student proficiency rates and annual testing.
Here’s the map.
Kentucky’s light gray shading doesn’t look like a good thing when it comes to reporting honesty.
So, maybe we need to take those claims about education progress in Kentucky with a grain of salt. Per the Collaborative for Student Success, that might be more due to inflated test results rather than real improvement.
