Taking liberty to the airwaves: BIPPS on the Joe Elliott Show

Richard Innes, education analyst for the Bluegrass Institute, will be on the Joe Elliott Show on 970 WGTK-AM in Louisville on Monday at 1 p.m. EDT.

Innes will be discussing the current educational challenges in Kentucky.

The Joe Elliott Show is broadcast weekdays from Noon to 3 p.m. EDT.

Listen live here.

In a recent blog emphasizing the need to better prepare elementary school teachers in order to improve Kentucky students' sagging Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) results, Innes writes:

"Kentucky’s current requirements for elementary teachers create a set up for people who are math phoebes to get into teaching – a situation virtually guaranteed to create problems for students that will lock those kids out of any chance to go into the areas of science, technology, math and science – the so-called STEM areas."
