Cowgill, a former Lexington attorney who served as state budget director under Gov. Ernie Fletcher, became interim president of the Council on Postsecondary Education in September 2007. Double the Numbers arose from the council’s goal of increasing the level of education in Kentucky to equal or exceed the national average by 2020. That requires doubling the percentage of Kentucky residents with college degrees.
Cowgill and Goodman also discuss some recent successes for the council, including uniting the community and technical colleges in the state to form the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
