Kentucky's Governor Says No To Overhauling CATS Test

Governor Beshear says Kentucky’s accountability tests should not be changed.

The governor says he would veto Senate Bill 1 which calls for a major overhaul of the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System commonly called "CATS."

The bill would replace open response questions with multiple choice problems, and do away with writing portfolios for some students.

Governor Beshear says such legislation would jeopardize Kentucky’s compliance with No Child Left Behind and federal education money.
