A report released Monday morning says Kentucky schools are excelling despite the economy.

The study done by the Bluegrass Institute looked at ACT test scores in contrast to how much money was spent on each individual student.

The report says despite a high poverty rate in districts like Barbourville and Harlan, the county's ACT scores were still in line with or higher than state averages.

Author of the study Richard G. Innes says the study proves that it's not about how much money the school district has, but about making better use of available resources. He also says, “It adds more evidence that poverty is no excuse for failing to adequately prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century marketplace.”
