Nothing is any more important to our state than safeguarding and educating our children. Kentucky will spend more than three billion taxpayer dollars this year on K-12 education.  That’s a lot of money. 

Because they control so much money, especially in Eastern Kentucky, schools are also huge sources of power. They control access to success; educationally, economically, and socially for many folks in small communities like ours. 

Here in Knox County, our two school districts combined are by far the largest source of employment in our county. Because of the tremendous responsibility, financial resources, and power our school districts have, it is imperative that they also have public trust.
