Public Education Forums To Be Held Across Kentucky Tuesday

by Gabe Bullard on August 16, 2010

Public forums on education will be held across Kentucky Tuesday.

Ten cities will host two-hour forums beginning at 7 pm. The discussions are part of Governor Steve Beshear’s Transforming Education in Kentucky initiative and will focus on topics such as education attainment and technology.

Education Cabinet spokesperson Cathy Lindsey says the forums will be divided between group discussions and a statewide telecast of a panel discussion with the Governor and First Lady.

“The local discussions are going to be talking about people’s concerns in that particular area, but for the second hour when the Governor and First Lady hold a panel discussion, they’re just going to be there to listen to see what communities have to say about what they want to see in education in the future,” she says.

The panel will also be broadcast live on KET. In Louisville, the forum will be held at the Jefferson Community and Technical College downtown.
