African-American churches across Kentucky are participating in "Super Sunday" events, designed to help increase the college-going rates of minority students. Each of the sixteen colleges in the KCTCS system is partnering with churches in their communities to host college information fairs today for prospective college students and their families.
A vote on legislation that would allow charter schools may finally have it’s day in the Kentucky state House education committee.
House Education Chairman Carl Rollins says he’s considering allowing a charter school bill to receive a hearing and a vote in his committee this session. That’s been unheard of since Rollins assumed the chair of that committee.
Rollins makes no guarantee he’ll bring up a charter school bill, but says if there’s legislation out there he can deal with, a vote could happen.
