Want to know how Kentucky ranks for the percentage of our high school kids taking upper level math and science courses?
A recent report from The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education attempted to collect that information from all the states, but the Kentucky report says on page 5,
“Policymakers and state residents do not have access to important information about the courses students take in high school because the state declined to participate in the national survey.”
Why did our educators refuse to participate? If we really are doing so well in education, don’t you think they’d want these numbers shouted from the rooftops?
A tip of the hat to the Prichard Committee Blog for directing our attention to the National Center’s report.
