Maysville’s The Ledger Independent has chimed in on the new ACT results, as well.
We need to be cautious about comparing Kentucky’s latest results to the national average (because only 49 percent of graduates took the ACT nation-wide while all of Kentucky’s Class of 2011 did).
Still, the point that a newspaper is now saying NO! to a knee-jerk call for more spending to fix problems in education is very interesting.
We do like the paper’s call for technology to be part of the answer, and we’ll have more to say on that in a few more days.
