Education

A good public education system is vital to our state's strength and prosperity.  Every child deserves the best education that we can give them.  That's why I co-sponsored legislation that significantly invests in our K-12 schools.  In Session 2022, the General Assembly voted to increase the allocation to the SEEK formula, which is the method by which a school district receives state money per child.  We also increased transportation funding and capital projects around the state.  The Commonwealth of KY has never put more into public education than we do now.  

However, we know that traditional public education is not the best option for some students.  Therefore, I voted to expand school choice by creating a funding mechanism for public charter schools.  This will enhance and expand options for students, especially those in districts where the public schools are underperforming.  I believe that parents are in control of their child's education and we should be providing every opportunity possible for each child to receive the best education.
