State School Board Appointments

The Kentucky Senate confirmed all but one of Gov. Andy Beshear’s appointments to the state school board, accepting the continuity of a new board amid the coronavirus outbreak that closed schools.The lone appointment rejected in the high-stakes vote Wednesday night was the state board’s chairman, David Karem. The former longtime legislator’s confirmation was defeated on a tie vote. Karem was a key architect of the state’s landmark education reform law enacted in 1990.
