This is the story of a group of parents and citizens who decided to improve the schools in their state. Tired of the complacent attitudes Kentucky politicians showed toward education, the Prichard Committee formed as an organization to galvanize the citizens of Kentucky to attack the state’s historic educational deficits. The committee’s campaigning helped prepare the way for the passage of the Kentucky Education Reform Act in 1990 and continues to work for school reform today. Based on his wealth of experience and success with the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, Bob Sexton provides invaluable guidance for citizens of all states who are interested in implementing school reform.
