Daviess County educator Jana Bryant offers her take on the need for investing in Kentucky’s schools:
Kentucky is making great progress increasing college- and career-readiness, but this progress cannot continue by failing to fund needs like textbooks and technology, necessary teacher training to implement the Common Core, and support services that increase opportunities to uplift underperforming and underrepresented students suffering from academic defeat and under realized potential.
Jana is the latest in a chorus of teacher voices singing out in the name of improved funding for Kentucky’s schools. The song is the same: We’ve done well, but that progress will stop unless Kentucky commits to continued investment in its public schools.
