Inequity continues in Kentucky’s schools

This is no surprise to our regular readers, but LEX18 in Lexington just posed “Kentucky Schools Becoming Less White, But Inequities Persist,” which further substantiates what we’ve been saying for years.

However, there is a warning buried in the news item’s title that everyone in Kentucky needs to heed.

With the state slowly becoming less white, our failure to adequately educate our minority students becomes an increasing challenge for the overall well being of everyone. Given the facts of life in the global world economy where education is essential to higher wages, having more students who don’t have a competitive education is clearly of major concern.
