The Kentucky Department of Education can't be impartial in the retaliation of Stu Silberman against former Booker T. Washington Academy principal Peggy Petrelli. Putting KDE in the position to decide if Fayette County Public Schools should write a big check to someone who has been defamed (Petrelli) or not would only make sense in the corrupt educational backwaters of Kentucky.
And, of course, there is no sense expecting any help from Governor Steve Beshear.
Petrelli's best option is probably to leave the state. That is Kentucky's loss.
