LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Education officials in Kentucky say the state has become a leader in instituting the new Common Core standards.

Kentucky became the first state to implement the more rigorous curriculum in math and reading lessons two years ago. The Courier-Journal reports that teachers in the state have embraced the changes and are offering encouragement to educators in other states who have hesitated in adopting them.

Education Commissioner Terry Holliday said Kentucky teachers have been "strong leaders" in implementing the standards.

The goal is to make sure that students are prepared for college and the workforce when the graduate from high school.
