The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence
- Education |
The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence is a nonprofit, nonpartisan citizen-led organization founded in 1983 to harness citizen voices to advocate for vastly improved schools across the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We focus on informing the public and policymakers, studying priority issues, and engaging business leaders, families, students, and other citizens to demand educational excellence and equity from the earliest years through postsecondary education.
The Prichard Committee membership is comprised of 120 citizens across the state who dedicate themselves to learning about the issues, educating leaders in their own regions, and advocating for policies that support Kentucky’s education progress.
