Kentucky points the way

When I wrote "Alternatives for Florida's Assessment and Accountability System" (available in Word or PDF, in a new window) for the Reform Florida briefs on educational policy in the state, I hadn't known that Kentucky requires educational audits for schools labeled low-performing. That had been one of my key recommendations, and I wish I had been aware of Kentucky beforehand. I'm not sure if there's been solid research on Kentucky's practice, but I'll check before I turn the briefs into any article(s).

Sometimes, that's the risk with writing policy stuff under time pressure: you can't know everything that's happening. But Kentucky's example at least is that.
