Unbridled Learning Accountability

Some Kentucky superintendents have expressed concern with at least one indicator educators use to measure accountability, and education officials say tweaks to state’s new Unbridled Learning system could be forthcoming.

In the Kentucky Department of Education’s monthly webinar, Commissioner Terry Holliday said superintendents’ No. 1 concern is measuring student growth.

KY Chamber

Kentucky’s Chamber of Commerce supports the Commonwealth’s new education standards despite a 30%

decline in assessment scores released last week. Chamber President and CEO Dave Adkisson says education officials expected lower scores because of more rigorous standards that were established after the legislature passed sweeping education reform in 2009. Adkisson says the scores, while accurate, shouldn’t be scoffed at.
