The Prichard Committee opposes Senate Bill 1 with the addition of Senate Bill 138 as passed this morning. Kentucky has an established process of standard revision set forth in Senate Bill 1 (2017) and a commitment to local decision-making for curriculum and instructional materials, which is inclusive of parents and local leaders. The existing process is a systemic way to develop the state’s standards and curriculum frameworks, serving to empower all Kentucky students with the abilities and capacities needed to become informed citizens and participants in a global economy. Legislative mandates, as put forth in Senate Bill 138, may reduce the quality of education provided by Kentucky’s public schools and received by Kentucky’s students.
