16 JCPS schools continue to struggle

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS schools are failing to improve and Kentucky's education commissioner says the state may have to step in.

Terry Holliday says the failure of several schools to improve their academics is a community wide problem. He calls it "academic genocide."

A new analysis by the department found that 16 of the 18 Jefferson County schools that underwent overhauls in the past three years showed little or no progress.

JCPS Superintendent Donna Hargens says her administration accepts responsibility and has a plan to turn around it's failing schools.
