We have created this new stakeholder advocacy group called Save Our Schools KY to help raise awareness of impending actions and legislation that could impact our public schools. We are building a unified front to protect our public schools from attacks by privatizers and billionaires.
The playbook has already been written! Defund schools, test and punish, raise class sizes, close schools, blame teachers, and bring in privatizers and charters to save the day! Sound familiar?
It is already being played out in many other urban districts such as New Orleans, Philadelphia, Boston and Chicago. Kentucky is still late to the game, and if we act now, we still have a chance at holding our ground.
How can you help?
Spread the word! Help us get others to sign up for our emails and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Our fiscal sponsor, Parents Across America, is helping us with grants and donations until our 501(c)3 is established. Funds raised will go towards copies, signage, literature, marketing and more.

Our organization is still in its infancy. We are looking for officers, volunteers, and mobilizers to help us win this battle. The opposition is well funded and well organized. It’s going to take all of us!
