“There is no greater investment in our state’s future than education, which ensures the next generation is prepared to successfully enter the workforce and contribute to the incredible economic growth and job development Kentucky has worked to achieve. Education helps ensure a quality and prosperous life for all current and future Kentuckians. In what has been – and continues to be – a very tough couple of years for our schools, we are so pleased to see these proposed historic investments in public education.  

“The priorities for the Kentucky Board of Education and the Kentucky Department of Education this budget cycle include funding all-day kindergarten, funding school transportation costs and restoring funding for professional development for our public school teachers. All of these are supported by this budget proposal, along with other investments that will contribute to the quality of education for Kentucky’s public school students.
