Capitol Education Center

Students from Rosa Parks Elementary School (Fayette County) and Richardsville Elementary School (Warren County) were on hand for the Capitol Education Center’s grand opening, hosted by First Lady Jane Beshear.  The space, a former heating and cooling facility at the Capitol, will promote energy efficiency and sustainability. And it can be used a place for classes to eat lunch while visiting the Capitol and the Governor’s Mansion.

I look forward to visiting the center again when it is full of students excited to be in the capital city, and seeing the rooftop garden in full bloom.

Check out the Kentucky Teacher news item about the center here.
