The Bluegrass Institute recently sat down to talk about public education in Kentucky with Billy Harper, who is president of Harper Industries, a Paducah-based construction company.

Harper has a long record of involvement in education in the Bluegrass State. He recently completed a four-year term on the Kentucky Board of Education, which develops policy and adopts the regulations that govern the commonwealth’s 174 school districts and the state Department of Education.

Gov. Steve Beshear appointed him to the state education board shortly after taking office in 2008. Harper previously was a member of the McCracken County School Board.

The institute is releasing a series of videos based on our interview with Harper as part of National School Choice Week.
