  • Montell prefiles bill to create charter schools

    State Rep. Brad Montell (R-Shelbyville) is a fan of charter schools. Too bad Kentucky law does not allow for them.

    "Charter schools are usually among the top performer in school districts," he said in a press release. "These high performers are setting important examples about what public schools can achieve, often with under-served students."

    That's why Montell has prefiled Bill Request 79 to change current legislation.
