Hispanic School Board Members in Kentucky

Document Type


Publication Date



There has been little research done on Hispanics in Kentucky schools. The data from the current study, while reflective of Kentucky schools, cannot be generalized to the rest of the United States. The purpose of this research was to survey the 174 Kentucky school districts to gather information on Hispanic school board members. The information was compiled from data collected from Kentucky school superintendents. The collected data will add to the information available to the Commonwealth, universities, school districts, administrators, teachers, and the public concerning Hispanic school board members. This research was a follow-up study to the research by Ballestero and Wright (2008) and (2007).
