Education commissioner proposes reorganization

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A reorganization of the education
department that would cut four top administrative positions is
being proposed.
Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday said in a
statement Thursday that the reorganization is designed to make the
agency more efficient and help it provide services more
effectively.
Department spokeswoman Lisa Gross told The Courier-Journal that
the move was spurred by budget cuts.
In addition, the newspaper reports Holliday fired two other
administrators last week as part of the reorganization.
The General Assembly cut funding by 3.5 percent in 2010-11 for
the Department of Education and other state agencies.
