Repeal Charter Schools

House Bill Number: 

House Bill 17 (and the similar House Bill 14) would repeal legislation establishing charter schools in Kentucky.

Bill Sponsor(s): 
Rep. Attica Scott + 22 other Democrats

KFTC's platform calls for a system of high-quality public education, including pre-school through higher education, that is accessible and affordable for all Kentuckians. Charter schools take resources from public education and do not serve all students.

Both bills were assigned to the House Education Committee. House leaders did not allow the bills to be brought up for a hearing or a vote.
