FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Education advocates will meet Thursday to discuss funding for Kentucky schools at a summit sponsored by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence and the Kentucky Education Action Team.

The meeting, set for 10 a.m. EST Thursday at Embassy Suites in Lexington, will include presentations from numerous education experts.

Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday is slated to discuss school funding issues. And Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson will talk about tax reform efforts.

Some of the state's top education advocacy groups will be involved, including the Kentucky Association of School Administrators, the Kentucky School Boards Association, the Kentucky PTA and the Kentucky Education Association.

The meeting comes less than two months ahead of the next legislative session, slated to begin on Jan. 7.
