Kentucky Chamber of Commerce CEO Dave Adkisson discussed the organization’s legislative priorities today. On education, the Chamber seeks to protect school funding – note, not increase or improve, but simply protect existing funds and also to allow charters.
As the legislature considers the recommendation of the Chamber to allow charters, legislators should also look to other states for some important lessons.
I’ve written before about the unfortunate experience Ohio has had with charters over a long period of time.
Additionally, it seems the Chamber would do well to advance the cause of restoring school funding to 2008 levels, not just protecting funding at its present state.
