The catch phrase for our state is “Kentucky, where education pays,” but the system doesn’t teach us much about our actual state.

There are a lot of interesting things to learn about Kentucky that stretch beyond a class room’s reach.

Here are 13 things we don’t learn about Kentucky in school:

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
