About Kentucky School Talk


I’m a public school teacher, so believe me when I say that I’m invested in public education. However, I’m not convinced that all of our students are getting the high-quality education that they deserve.

Across Kentucky, there are thousands of students in danger of falling through the cracks. One in five have experienced poverty at some point in their lives, and many others have been victims of discrimination, apathy, and a lack of opportunities. I believe that public education is the best resource we have in the fight against injustices like these, and that’s why I’m here. 

Founded in 2018, Kentucky School Talk is the Commonwealth’s premier education reader focusing on stories, issues, and opinions on equity across the Bluegrass. We believe in the future of Kentucky’s public schools and their students, and we’re committed to elevating the voices of those who often get lost in the fray.
