Education groups across Kentucky say state funding for public schools is at a 'crisis point.'

The Kentucky Education Action Team is holding a rally Thursday night at 6:30 pm in Lexington to raise awareness about education funding.

The KYEAT and other education leaders want funding for schools to return to 2008 levels.

They say schools have not had raises in money for books, after school tutoring, and professional development in six years.

The rally called "Kids Can't Wait," will be held in the EJ Hayes Middle School Gymnasium. The rally is open to the public. FCPS Dr. Tom Shelton and Kentucky Education Commissioner Dr. Terry Holliday are expected to attend and speak, along with local lawmakers.
