What's Next for Kentucky Schools?

The Outlook for K-12 under President Trump

President Trump recently called education “the civil rights issue of our time” and campaigned for a $20 billion school choice program. The John H. Schnatter Institute for the Study of Free Enterprise has assembled an expert panel of academics and policymakers to explore the challenges facing our K-12 schools in Kentucky. UK scholars from the Gatton College of Business and Economics, Martin School of Public Policy, College of Education, and the Kentucky Education & Workforce Development Cabinet will debate on school choice, vouchers, and charter schools.
