EDUCATION-KINDERGARTENERS
Assessment finds half of kindergartners in Kentucky not ready for school

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, January 31, 2014 3:33 PM EST
FRANKFORT, Ky.


A new report says about half of kindergartners in Kentucky aren't prepared to master essential skills in school.

Media reported results of the assessment, which was released Thursday, found that 51 percent of those who started school in the fall of 2013 weren't ready.

Kindergartners across the state were given the Brigance screener, which includes tasks such as reciting the alphabet and counting to 30.

Gov. Steve Beshear, who supports expanding early childhood education, said the results are disappointing but not surprising.

Education Commissioner Terry Holliday says the data can be used to help close achievement gaps.
