For the past 18 years, educators in Kentucky have had their feet held to the proverbial fire.
As the years have passed, the fire got a little hotter.
By the year 2014, school districts in Kentucky had a goal of 100 percent proficiency for their students in the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System.
As of 2008, no Bullitt County school had reached the magic mark across the board. Few in Kentucky had met their goal with just six more years to go.
