Report Shows Kentucky Progresses In Reforming Higher Education

A report released Dec. 4 shows Kentucky has progressed in reforming higher education, but more must be accomplished.

A report in the Lexington Herald-Leader says the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Report affirms the reform goals formulated in the administration of Governor Paul Patton and approved by the legislature a decade ago.

According to the published report, challenges still ahead include an overhaul of the state's student aid program to make college affordable to more people.

Also needed is greater cooperation among universities, community colleges and economic development agencies to make sure there are jobs for an educated work force.
