• Educational Systems

  • Kentucky has proven its commitment to ensuring that all citizens are well educated with the far-reaching educational reforms of the 1990’s, a national model for school reform. Kentucky has risen above the national average in the percent of young adults 25 to 34 years old with a high school diploma. At the primary level: fourth and eighth grade students are ahead of the nation in reading at the basic level.
