FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Education reports that 75 percent of public schools made adequate yearly progress under requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Test results show 884 of Kentucky's 1,167 public schools met the goal and 283 did not.

The results are based on the Kentucky Core Content Test items in reading and mathematics. Schools are required to have specific percentages of students reaching proficiency or above in reading and mathematics each year and to meet other criteria in order to make adequate yearly progress.

    I believe that Kentucky schools in my area needs to inforce correct spelling right from the first grade, not just by what the words sound like. I have seen too much misspelling by children of all ages in the last 15 years. If Kentucky schools wouldn't worry too much about the $$$$ and start worring about our children's education, then maybe our children COULD READ better.

    Ralph Baze deserves to be punished. Please do not allow him to become a celebrity through and by your newscast as previously aired. If anything, interview the family who still must live through this so called justice system decision. I'm a faithful WKYT viewer but do not agree with wasting my viewing time on such a smug,cold blooded killer. Who knows, maybe he'll write a book! Hopefully, his next starring role will be from the execution chamber. Please do not let him argue his case in my living room!

    So are we saying that it is okay that 25 percent of the schools DID NOT improve? Why can't we have 100 percent?

    I can not believe that they are staying the execution of Ralph Baze!!!

    And, as long as we are improving math skills, the percentage to seven decimal places is actually 75.7497858 of the schools, which, if you are rounding, is APPROXIMATELY 76 percent.

    Thanks for explaining that of the 1167 Public Schools, 884 improved whereas the remaining 283 did not. Now I don't feel pressure to do math. Isn't this kind of like saying "Either I'm going to eat lunch today, or I'm not"?
