The Family Foundation Applauds Kentucky House for Passing School Choice Constitutional Amendment

FRANKFORT, KY – The Family Foundation applauds the Kentucky House for passing HB 2, a proposed amendment to the Kentucky Constitution that, if passed, would open the door for more educational choices for Kentucky families. HB 2, by Rep. Suzanne Miles, passed 65-32 and now heads to the Kentucky Senate.

If passed by the General Assembly, the proposed amendment would be put on the November ballot for voters in Kentucky to approve. 

Statement from David Walls, executive director of The Family Foundation:

“Education always works best when parents are empowered with educational choices for their children. I am thankful that the General Assembly is looking to move Kentucky forward by providing families greater freedom to choose the best education for their children.

“States all across the nation are allowing for diverse educational choices, including popular school choice programs, that are benefiting students and families in public schools, private schools, and in homeschools. Kentucky must not be left behind. We look forward to Kentucky voters having the opportunity to vote for more educational choices that will benefit every Kentucky student,” Walls concluded.

Due to a problematic Kentucky Supreme Court decision restricting educational options for families, a school choice constitutional amendment must be passed to ensure Kentucky families have the full educational opportunities they need to meet the needs of their children.

More than 30 states have educational choice programs, and Kentucky is the only state in the region without an active school choice program.
