Rep. Stan Lee has pre-filed a bill to create special needs student scholarships to help some families opt out of their assigned public school when their education needs are not being met.
Given the current political realities in Frankfort generally and in the House Education Committee specifically, it is extremely unlikely this bill or anything like it will get a hearing.
Kentuckians deserve to have more accountability from their public school administrators than we currently enjoy. Can’t imagine why they run so frantically from even discussing ways to better serve vulnerable kids in Kentucky.
Anyone inclined to just dismiss the idea out of hand would do well to talk to someone in Georgia, which has already implemented a similar program to the one being proposed here.
