Top-Down--Bottom-Up: Systemic Change in Kentucky.
Steffy, Betty E.
Educational Leadership, v51 n1 p42-44 Sep 1993
After the Kentucky Supreme Court declared Kentucky's educational system unconstitutional, the state launched a unique, comprehensive restructuring effort. Top-down state education department reforms include development of world-class curriculum standards, a statewide authentic assessment system, and a school accountability system linking sanctions and rewards to demonstrated student achievement. Bottom-up reforms will follow. (MLH)
