Thousands more public high school students in Kentucky are taking Advanced Placement exams, and those numbers have more than doubled for some minority groups in the past five years. The Kentucky Department of Education attributed the rise to a program aimed at increasing both participation and success in the college-level courses.

Pendleton County Schools Superintendent Anthony Strong told The Kentucky Enquirer that the proposal is too vague. He says there needs to be a better explanation of expectations.
