It’s rally for public school choice time in Knox County

The Times Tribune has a nice report on the latest developments in the Knox County Public Schools/Corbin Independent Schools battle over student transfer rights between the two school systems.

Key items:

An appeal to Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday is in the works.

If that appeal fails, parents are planning legal action based on some interesting issues such as the guarantee of a free, appropriate and “efficient education” found in federal and state statutes.

The case concerning the lack of efficiency in Knox County schools looks strong. We blogged earlier about how the taxpayer spends far more in Knox County schools for a much lower graduation rate and a lower level of educational performance than the Corbin Independent schools provide.

Anyway, it looks like school choice proponents are heading to the Grace on the Hill Church in Knox County this coming Saturday, February 27, 2010. You might want to be there, too.
