About Kentucky School Talk

To put it simply, I’m a believer in the power of public education. In a state where one in five students have experienced poverty  and many others have been victims of discrimination, apathy, and a lack of opportunities, how can we not be? Education is the best resource we have in the fight against injustices like these, and that’s why I’m here – I want to share the stories of teachers, administrators, and policymakers around Kentucky that are working miracles to help kids be successful.

Founded in 2018, Kentucky School Talk is the Commonwealth’s premier education reader focusing on stories, issues, and opinions on educational 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.
