A Message from EdChoice KY
As you may have seen, the General Assembly adjourned without passing a Scholarship Tax Credit program during the 2018 session, either as a standalone measure or as part of the tax reform bill—despite commitments to the contrary. Sadly, thousands of low- and middle-income families will continue to be denied the opportunity to access the school that best meets their children’s needs.
Why did this happen? Although School Choice is an issue that is supported by the majority of Kentuckians, the 2018 General Session was incredibly contentious. At the end of the day, the General Assembly opted to avoid additional confrontation with our very vocal opponents.
Despite the disappointing outcome, we are grateful for your efforts and support.
Thanks to you, we had more support from legislators than ever before, and this year’s School Choice Rally was the largest in Kentucky history. You gave voice to the children and families who are too often ignored. There is much to be proud of, but more to be done.
What comes next? Supporters must remain engaged. The fight is not over and EdChoice KY is not giving up.
We encourage you to contact your state senator’s and state representative’s offices at 502-564-8100. Let the members of the General Assembly know that you are disappointed that Scholarship Tax Credits were not passed—highlighting the opportunities this program would give to Kentucky’s vulnerable populations.
In the coming months, take time and show up to local legislative forums legislators will be holding and continue to be a voice for the children who deserve options.
There is still hope for the students of Kentucky. The 2019 session will be here soon and the work of passing a program starts now. EdChoice KY remains steadfast in our belief that ALL Kentucky families and children deserve to have the opportunity to choose their school. Policymakers must be made to realize this program is about people—not dollars.
In the next few weeks the EdChoice KY board will meet to develop our strategy for moving forward. I encourage you to contact me with questions or suggestions for the coming year. Most importantly, I hope we can count on your continued support for better education options for all Kentucky students.
Charles Leis, President, EdChoice KY
