John Hopkins flawed report on Kentucky

It looks like a recent, very problematic report from Johns Hopkins University, “For All Kids, How Kentucky is Closing the High School Graduation Gap for Low-Income Students,” is likely to get pushed well beyond the Bluegrass State’s borders.

The publishers just announced a webinar on this report for August 30th.

Anyway, you need to get up to speed on why this report is build on a foundation of sand. You can do that fairly quickly by checking these blogs:

News release: The uneven quality of Kentucky’s high school diplomas

More on the quality control problems with Kentucky’s high school diplomas – Part 1

A third blog will release at 8 am Eastern tomorrow. It will probably link at

More on the quality control problems with Kentucky’s high school diplomas – Part 2

I won’t know for sure until it releases, however.

Let me know if you have questions and especially if this Hopkins report starts making the rounds in your state.
