LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A report by a nonprofit education group says while Kentucky students are making improvements in achievement, the state remains behind in other key areas.

Among the problems cited in the Top 20 by 2020 report are overall state funding for public schools, preschool enrollment and the number of four-year degrees earned.

The report by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, an education advocacy group based in Lexington, was released Friday. It looks at how the state stacks up against 20 key nationwide measures.

The report found that in 10 categories, Kentucky is on target to be in the top 20 by 2020. In five, the state is already in the top 20, and in the remaining five, the state is moving too slowly to reach the top 20 in the next eight years.
