  • Kent’s Column: After the Polls Close, Just Do It!

    11/7/2014 01:41:48 PM0 Comments
     

    So after one of the most contentious well publicized and important races in Kentucky history, the polls have closed, the ballots counted, and voters have spoken.  And they chose Stephanie Horne, Lisa Wilner, Linda Duncan and Diane Porter.

     Oh yeah, and Senator Mitch McConnell, John Yarmuth and Mayor Greg Fisher won their elections as well (the former a bit closer than the latter two).

    With all due respect for our returning senior senator, in the Louisville Metro, some might say that the most important elections this cycle involved the JCPS School Board.  And with a couple of new faces and a whole lot of new public awareness, meaningful progress on public education may now retake its rightful seat at the front of the policy bus.  For too long transformational education change has seemed too difficult, too soon, too bold, too much…  You get it, somehow beyond our imaginations.  So let’s get past the parochial thinking of the past and start thinking big, really big.  Let's start believing that our new school board will see though the changes we need so that someday soon people will move to Louisville FOR its public schools.
