This week saw a focused push by education advocates to convince the Kentucky General Assembly to restore education funding to 2008 levels.
Stu Silberman of the Prichard Committee penned this piece calling for a continued focus on progress.
Meanwhile, Andrew Brennen, the student member of the Prichard Committee, made a presentation during which he noted:
Some students pay $130 in fees, but don’t have access to textbooks. And those who do have textbooks often find them in “decrepit” shape, a tangible symbol of the cuts, said Brennen.
Finally, the Courier-Journal ran a story on Superintendent salaries, noting that while some have actually decreased and most have remained relatively flat in recent years, a number of districts have actually substantially increased Superintendent pay.
