If you have a kid in the Fort Thomas Independent School district, or live in Fort Thomas, I hope you will take a close look at Kentucky’s House Bill 520. Let me explain why.
Fort Thomas schools are the hub of our community.
When test scores come out, we share them with each other online.
When there are sporting events, choir performances, school plays, etc., the entire community shows up. In Fort Thomas, you don’t just see one parent at school, you often see both. And it isn’t unusual to see both sets of Grandparents, the church pastor, and the closest neighbors!
Having arguably the best school system in Kentucky didn’t happen by accident. We invested to make it happen.
Despite our success, the State of Kentucky doesn’t treat us very well.
