Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Supporters of charter schools rallied at Louisville's City Hall Monday.

About 30 local pastors showed up to urge state officials and lawmakers to support charter school legislation.

Some parents of children enrolled in public schools also showed their support alongside the members of the Kentucky Black Alliance for Educational Options Pastors Coalition.

“When parents have a choice they can decide,” Pastor Cecil Bly, Jr. said, “parents can decide what school is best for their kids, what educational paradigm is best for their children. I believe when you empower parents you empower families.”

The rally was organized by members of the Kentucky Black Alliance for Educational Options Pastors Coalition.
