This year's session of the Kentucky state legislature is a budget session, which means that our legislators will be working with Governor Bevin to create a state budget for 2018-20. From all indications, this year's budget will be particularly difficult due to the fact that additional appropriations are needed for pensions, correctional institutions, Medicaid and other crucial state programs.  In fact, cuts to the 2018-20 budget are expected to be so severe that it's possible that even SEEK funding may be cut.

Senate budget Chairman Chris McDaniel has said he could not promise that SEEK funding will be protected.

"I would like to tell you that it will be, but I can't in all honesty say that," said McDaniel. "It is such a large part of our remaining budget. K-12 schools are 45 percent of the General Fund. And we are looking at a hole in our budget that is $1 billion. So how you close that hole without touching SEEK, I really can't tell you yet."  (John Cheves, Lexington Herald Leader, "1 billion cut in state budget raising worries", January 8, 2018)

Let me explain why cuts to SEEK would be so damaging to our public schools and how it would impact Paducah Public Schools.
