Top 100 for Young People

Take it for what it's worth, but Louisville was again ranked as one of America's Best Communities for Young People. The ranking was largely based on the highly successful Every 1 Reads program which aims to brings all studetns to or above their grade reading level by 2008. And with over 6,000 volunteers, they're well on their way to acheieving that goal.

Another reason is GE's generous gift of 25 million dollars for the JCPS district to find ways to improve math and science scores.

Let's hope this programs continue to help Louisville students discover the values of education.
