In conjunction with his press conference on January 21, 2016, Stephen Pruitt, Kentucky’s new commissioner of education, issued a print/online report on “The State of K-12 Education in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”
Some good news is this report covers a whole lot of interesting and important territory. Over time, this format could prove very valuable.
However, there are some obvious problems in this initial edition of The State of K-12 Education in Kentucky that can charitably be attributed to start up issues. There is a lot of room for improvement as some of the data and claims in the report are either incomplete or don’t convey an accurate picture.
