FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear says he'll sign legislation to erase the Commonwealth Accountability Assessment Test in Kentucky schools.
Beshear says he has some reservations about the legislation. But Beshear says he'll nevertheless sign the legislation the Kentucky General Assembly sent him last week.
Beshear says he's also appointing a panel to look at the Kentucky Education Reform Act which was passed nearly two decades ago.
The school accountability system was a key facet of the watershed 1990 Kentucky Education Reform Act. Its last revision came a decade ago in 1998.
The legislation is Senate Bill 1.
