Head over to the Courier-Journal’s website to watch an interview with Bluegrass Institute President Jim Waters talking about Public Charter Schools in Kentucky. JCTA President Brent McKim responded by email in this article. Leave your thoughts about what he says in our comments! (*do we even need to say how insulting this is?)
It is unfortunate that groups like the Bluegrass Institute are willing to take advantage of low-income and minority students in order to try to advance their agenda to privatize our public schools. Most Kentuckians understand public schools are the foundation of our democracy and should be supported, not abandoned for charter schools that have a terrible track record.
