Louisville, Ky. (August 11, 2023) – Attorney General and Republican nominee for Governor Daniel Cameron released the following statement in light of new developments regarding the Jefferson County School System (JCPS):
“It is unacceptable that kids in our largest school district will likely miss out on a week of classroom instruction,” Daniel Cameron said. “Our students are already suffering from historic learning loss as a result of Andy Beshear’s school shutdowns. This lack of leadership has put bus drivers, teachers, parents, and students in a terrible situation.
“Imagine being a parent on Wednesday night and not knowing where your child was. Even worse, imagine being that child on your first day of school. Parents should be able to trust district leadership in this basic responsibility. This is not the fault of any teacher or bus driver; it lies with the Jefferson County Board of Education. Although my confidence in teachers remains steadfast, I am disgusted with the political leaders who have failed our teachers, parents, and students.”
