House Speaker Greg Stumbo has expressed openness to killing the Kentucky Department of Education's discredited CATS program.
This would put him on the same side of the issue as Senate President David Williams.
But protectors of the status quo have, instead of making a case for the efficacy of their programs, made a habit of taking potshots at The Bluegrass Institute and anyone else who dares to threaten their base of power.
Take, for instance, this anonymous jab at The Institute on The Prichard Committee's new blog.
The Bluegrass Institute has tried for years to engage KDE sycophants like Prichard Committee in a meaningful debate.
