Prichard Committee and KY Chamber get their rankings wrong
Back in January, I wrote a fairly extensive blog about the poor ranking processes in two then new reports from Education Week’s Quality Counts series and from the UK Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER).
Just as in many years past, these rankings are clearly problematic.
But, that has not stopped a new report released a few weeks ago by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce from citing both the Quality Counts and CBER material as though it was high grade “stuff.”
That’s pretty disappointing, because we are not going to fix problems with Kentucky’s public education system if we don’t even establish a solid idea of how that system currently performs.
So, if you are interested in “The Rest of the Kentucky Education performance story”, as the late Paul Harvey would have so nicely put it, click the “Read more” link to get a more complete guide to Kentucky education.
