– So, how come no schools in Jefferson County participate?
It’s good news for Henderson County High School, an 88 percent increase in the number of students who passed advanced placement exams in math, science and English from 2007 to 2009.
Chalk up another “win” for the Advance Kentucky program, which we have already praised in this blog.
The article got me thinking, though.
1) Advance Kentucky’s program includes bonuses for teachers for each of their students who gets a college accepted (3 or higher) score on their AP exams.
2) In a recent Kentucky Board of Education meeting, it was mentioned that the Jefferson County Teachers Association contract prohibits bonuses.
Could 1 plus 2 equal the reason why not a single Jefferson County high school has ever participated in the Advance Kentucky program?
Enquiring minds want to know.
