The big bad wolf strikes again. The Aug. 11 and Aug. 13 articles, especially the Aug. 13 article by (Associated Press writer) Charles Wolfe, regarding the Kentucky School for the Deaf and the Kentucky School for the Blind failed to mention the fact that the Accountability Index at KSD (I amnot sure about KSB) has improved each of the past three years. So, I take exception to Mr. Wolfe's statement, "Test scores at both schools lagged badly."
Moreover, it was announced during the state Board of Education meeting in Frankfort Aug. 11 that KSD and KSB have met the AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) goal set forth by the NCLB (No Child Left Behind) Act. Yet both articles failed to include this positive announcement.
KSD and KSB do not deserve to be singled out. What about some of the public schools across the state that did not do right, and are not doing right by deaf and hard of hearing children? I know this because I have seen these circumstances.
