Seven education advocacy groups rallied Wednesday at the Kentucky capitol, in support of more public education funding.

The seven groups say lawmakers should return public school funding to the levels that existed in 2008. They want help to pay for textbooks, preschool programs, afterschool programs, teacher training, and school safety programs, among other things.

The coalition is made of the Kentucky Association of School Administrations, the Kentucky Association of School Councils, the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents, the Kentucky Education Association, the Kentucky Parent Teacher Association, the Kentucky School Board Association, and the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence.
