Kentucky Cited as a National Leader in School Turnaround

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) – At the Kentucky Board of Education meeting in Frankfort today, board members learned that Kentucky’s efforts to turn around low-performing schools are among the most effective in the nation.

Mass Insight Education, a national nonprofit that focuses on school reform, recently performed a diagnostic review of Kentucky’s work on school improvement and turnaround to gauge the state’s effectiveness and ability to drive and support school improvement and turnaround efforts statewide. The study focused on seven core components of a comprehensive state-level strategy, structure, and process.

“As national experts in school turnaround, we see Kentucky as a national leader in establishing a system of continuous improvement,” President and CEO of Mass Insight, Dr. Susan Lusi, told the board. “We talk about turnaround being dramatic, systemic and sustained, and we believe in many ways, Kentucky has achieved this,” Lusi said.
