(WHAS 11)--The push for public charter schools is continuing with a hearing Sept.9.

A Kentucky Committee will be discussing charter schools after hearing from professors, researchers and advocates.

 Kentucky is one of eight states without a charter law which would create a special type of public school meant to close the achievement gap.

A February poll in the courier journal found that 65 percent of respondents favor creating charter schools.
