West Kentucky Community & Technical College will return state funding after the school inaccurately reported adult education testing scores. 

Inaccurate reporting of testing scores from McCracken County’s adult education program has allowed West Kentucky Community and Technical College to get more money from the Commonwealth than it was qualified to receive. Kentucky adult education officials found student testing practices at WKCTC were not in compliance with state and federal policies and established ethical standards. Kentucky’s Adult Education agency requires the programs it funds to administer tests establishing a baseline education level teachers can plan around.
