Kentucky’s chances could be ‘toast’ without charter schools
We already pointed out that other states like Florida are taking a look at the Race to the Top (RTTT) Phase 1 awards and will up the ante considerably with their Phase 2 submissions.
If Kentucky really wants a shot at Phase 2 RTTT funding, which could amount to as much as $175 million, it must get on board with a good charter school program.
That requires legislation, which Governor Beshear recently announced he is considering. The governor may include such a legislative request in his anticipated call for a special legislative session to adopt a new state budget.
