Latest on Common Core in Kentucky: college professors report entering college freshmen are not ready
The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) got a lot of bad news during its meeting on Wednesday, December 9, 2015. This news isn’t just bad for Kentucky. It has rather serious implications for the national Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for math and English language arts, as well.
Very simply, scores are flat or in decline on just about all the tests given in Kentucky including college entrance tests and even the state’s own, Common Core aligned tests, too.
And now, we are getting word that college professors in Kentucky are seeing a decline in the preparation of incoming students, too. That does not bode well for Common Core or the Bluegrass State.
