  • NEIHOF: State budget makes negative impact

    There is a new bandwagon to support public education. Seven organizations representing the full spectrum of elementary and secondary education in Kentucky have banded together to urge Gov. Steve Beshear and the General Assembly to reverse four years of state funding reductions to key services that support teaching and learning in the state’s public schools.

    Thank goodness. Public school officials cannot make the demand alone. Our voices for help need to be heard loud and clear, and the more people screaming the message, the more likely we will be heard.
