Republican Jenean Hampton questioned public spending on preschool programs during an appearance on KET, saying parents should take responsibility for preparing their children for kindergarten. And she said parents should be able to take public tax dollars set aside for their children and spend them as they see fit, including on home or private school options.
Democrat Sannie Overly called Hampton's plan "disturbing," saying preschool programs prepare both parents and their children. She said pulling tax dollars out of the public schools would devastate public education.
With only 2/3 of the ballot represented in this publicly funded spectacle one thing is certain, KET does not have Fair Debates, a vexing reality for those who expect Free and Equal Elections in Kentucky.
