Kentucky’s interim commissioner of education has released an audit recommending that the state take over Louisville’s public school system.
The state board of education will have final say on whether to approve interim Education Commissioner Wayne Lewis’ request.
In a summary of the audit’s findings, Lewis said that the district has “deep-seated organization and cultural challenges.”
“The current state of JCPS is not the fault of any one leader or group. Instead, under the leadership of many and over a long period of time, serious challenges emerged and in many cases were permitted to fester,” Lewis wrote.
