Bluegrass Institute CEO: Poor, minority Ky. students being denied a seat at the Table of Opportunity
(ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky.) — Bluegrass Institute president and CEO Jim Waters will explain why the first and only free-market think tank in Kentucky is supporting outside intervention in the Jefferson County Public Schools and other statewide education reforms.
When: Saturday, June 16, 2018 @ 1 pm
Where: Take Back Kentucky meeting, Family Buffet, 121 Towne Drive, Elizabethtown
Who: Open to the public and press
“If poor blacks were denied at Kentucky’s lunch counters, no one would oppose ‘outside intervention,’ if necessary,” Waters said. “The math-proficiency gap between white and black JCPS fourth-graders is 38 points and is even larger in Elizabethtown, which indicates too many minorities are being denied a seat the Table of Opportunity across this commonwealth.”
