Most Ky. Student Proficient or Distinguished in Reading

Most of the 428,000 Kentucky students who took the reading portion of government-mandated achievement tests in April scored either "proficient" or "distinguished."

That's good news in a state that's on a push to improve its academic standings.

A spokeswoman from the Kentucky Department of Education says the state has put greater focus on reading for a few years now and the results are showing up in the scores.

Of the elementary students tested in reading, 72-percent scored in the proficient and distinguished ranges.

Among middle school students, 66-percent were at the proficient or distinguished levels.

And for high school students, 60-percent tested proficient or distinguished in reading.
