Kentuckians are known for many things. We are known for horse racing, for bourbon and for tobacco. We are known for being part of the Bible Belt, and we are known for our nearly religious devotion to our favorite basketball teams.
And we're also known, regrettably, for not caring too much about education.
We know there are many individuals who do care - deeply and sincerely - about how and what their own children and all the children in our community are taught.
