Every community has a unique story to tell. Many things contribute to the success of a community, but research shows that the key is a high-quality education system. This Community Profile shares data about how students in your community are progressing along their educational path. The full story of your community cannot be told by numbers alone – it must also be told through the stories and experiences of all the people who live there. This profile is meant to be a guide to help you and your neighbors explore how to pave the path to a larger life through education.
IT'S EVERYBODY'S BUSINESS
Excellence with Equity: It’s Everybody’s Business, a report that details findings and recommendations from a group of Kentuckians to address the Commonwealth’s education achievement gaps.
The report makes clear that the work of addressing Kentucky’s achievement gaps is everybody’s business. Along with parents, students, educators, and other citizens, we need policy, education, business, community, and faith leaders all over the state to share responsibility to expand opportunities and lift performance of all students.
Given Kentucky’s record of steady educational progress, the tremendous capacity of its educators, and the strong tradition in our communities that all children are “our kids,” there is ample reason for optimism that the Commonwealth can be the first state to achieve excellence with equity.
