Several days ago the Daily News in Bowling Green published an editorial praising the Kentucky Department of Education’s reported rapid rise in numerous Kentucky school districts of high school graduates considered college and/or career ready.
I know there are major concerns regarding the validity of these statistics and contacted the Daily News editor to discuss these issues. The editor was very open-minded and impressed enough with my comments that he asked for an Op-Ed covering the “rest of the story,” as the late Paul Harvey used to put it.
My Op-Ed ran yesterday.
So, if you are not up to speed on the credibility problems with Kentucky’s officially claimed high school graduation rates and college and/or career readiness rates, this Daily News article offers a nice, short way to learn what is going on.
