FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — The Kentucky Senate has confirmed all but one of Governor Andy Beshear's appointments to the State School Board.

The Senate rejected the appointment of former longtime Legislator David Karem Wednesday.

Karem has served as the School Board's Chairman, and was a key architect of the state's landmark Education Reform Law enacted in 1990.

Beshear disbanded the former Kentucky Board of Education on his first day in office in December.

He then recreated the board.
