In a post-election interview covered by the Northern Kentucky Tribune, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin specifically said he will work to reject the Common Core State Standards in Kentucky’s public schools. These highly controversial standards currently comprise the state’s reading, writing and math standards. With the new Republican majorities in the Kentucky House and Senate, Governor Bevin is in an excellent position to carry out this promise.

Governor Bevin also said Kentuckians can look forward to more school choice options for parents and students.

We expect a lot of interesting action on these education topics and a number of other policies the Bluegrass Institute has interest in such as right-to-work legislation (also mentioned in the article), and we’ll try to keep you up to date as this exciting new segment in the history of Kentucky unfolds.
