Check out education researcher Jay Greene’s map showing California — where the charter-school movement started about 20 years ago — with more than 800 charter schools operating during the 2009-10 school year.
Ohio, Kentucky’s neighbor to the northeast, trails only California (809), Arizona (482) and Florida (423) with 332 charter schools. Kentucky is one of only 11 states without charter schools. Six of Kentucky’s seven neighboring states have charter schools.
Let your legislator know: Kentucky needs charter schools.
