Courier Journal Editorial:
Yes to JCPS tax plan to improve equity and student achievement
When I ran for the @JCPSKY Board of Education In 2016, I promised I would fight to give all our kids the resources they need to succeed. I am incredibly proud to have championed this issue for over two years, and I ask you to join in saying #Yes4JCPS.
Four years ago, our school system was in crisis. As a JCPS graduate and a JCPS parent, I could not sit and watch as incompetence, greed, and partisan politics destroyed the schools that made me who I am. Against long odds and with your help, we won the election in 2016. Now that we’ve righted the ship, we must keep Board Members who support Dr. Pollio and his push for transformative change that will make JCPS the model for education in urban America. To keep our momentum and continue fighting for exceptional schools, I ask for your support.
Chris Kolb played a key role in:
Hiring Dr. Marty Pollio, the best superintendent in the country.
Fighting off Matt Bevin’s vicious attempt to take over JCPS.
Reorganizing district administration to send students and teachers the resources they need.
