Do you want Kentucky students to have the best schools in the nation? Do you want continued and sustained improvement in our schools?
If so, then join our collective voices calling for continually improved education for all Kentuckians. While Kentucky has risen to the middle of the pack of all states in educational rankings, we need to redouble our efforts to increase student achievement for all students while closing achievement gaps.
Your support is vital to the Prichard Committee’s role of being that watchful eye to make sure Kentucky stays on the path of continuous progress and maintains focus on the goal of leading the nation by 2020. Since 1983, the Committee has worked to study priority issues, inform the public and policy makers about best practices and engage business leaders, families, students, and other citizens to demand educational excellence and equity for all children, from their earliest years through postsecondary education.
The Committee receives no local, state or federal financial support. Our work is funded solely by contributions from private individuals and institutions, including support from 125 members across the state, who dedicate themselves to learning about relevant issues, educating school and community leaders in their own regions, and advocating for policies that are critical for our state’s educational progress. Your investment in the Prichard Committee, combined with the gifts of other generous contributors, goes to work immediately to help advocate for our state’s educational excellence.
“On the eve of my 90th birthday, I invite all who care about the future of our children to join with me in a gift to the committee to honor all who stood with Robert F. Sexton and Ed Prichard in this glorious campaign to improve Kentucky education.”Journalist Al Smith
