With the state’s looming take over of Jefferson County Public Schools at bay for now the School Board races may be worth reviewing more than usual.  How the embattled school system required more funds and voted to increase property taxes is worth considering.  Especially when we consider that taxpayers spend $11,000 a year per student for the education that JCPS has given recently.  The national average of $11,300 puts JCPS in the middle of the country in terms of spending.

We were unable to find a website for any candidate running for school board.
