Independent Education Consultant
Susan Perkins Weston is an independent consultant working on Kentucky education issues. State education spending patterns since 1990 are a major focus of her current work. Ms. Weston previously served as Executive Director of the Kentucky Association of School Councils, and she continues to provide coaching support for individual councils on request. Her analysis of test score data identified some of Kentucky’s earliest examples of high poverty, high performance schools and has encouraged continuing attention to achievement gap issues. The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence has published three of her works as citizens’ guides to school-based decision making, school budgets, and state assessment and accountability. Ms. Weston has made presentations for the Education Trust, the Kentucky Long-Term Policy Center, the School Financial Management Institute, the Kentucky Association of School Administrators, the Kentucky Education Association, the Kentucky PTA, the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education, and the Kentucky Association of School Councils. Ms. Weston graduated from Swarthmore College and Yale Law School and is a member of the Kentucky Bar Association. She and her husband Beau have two children in the Danville public schools and a daughter in college.
