LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has told a group of pastors that he has every intention of following through with his campaign promise to push for a charter school law in the state.
On Tuesday night, the Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1OwJsMa ) reports that Bevin told a crowd of roughly 100 pastors and community members at Christ Temple Christian Life Center in Louisville that he does not want to back down from the issue.
Bevin recently pledged in his inaugural address to push charter school legislation as a way to give parents and students alternatives to failing schools.
The Kentucky Pastors in Action Coalition has in previous years supported bringing charter schools to Louisville as a way to improve the lives of African-American and low-income families through access to quality education.
