Kentucky governor 'guarantees' children sexually assaulted, poisoned due to school closures

According to the Kentucky Education Association, Friday's rally was meant to encourage legislators to override Bevin's veto of budget and tax bills.

When asked by reporters what he thought of Friday's teachers protest, Bevin described it with disdain.

Teacher Karen Schwartz brought a sign to Kentucky's state Capitol on Friday declaring "Support our Schools".

"I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly, and so flippantly, disregarded what's truly best for children", Bevin said.

Bevin decried the latest spending bill, which raises cigarette sales tax by half and increases sales tax on some consumer services, as "sloppy" and "nontransparent" in a Friday tweet, and believes the bill underestimates the cost of school funding needed. Almost 40 school districts closed Friday because teachers requested leave to go to the rally in Kentucky's capital city, Frankfort.

He also "guaranteed" that a child ingested poison because their teachers were attending a protest and the child's parent wouldn't have enough money to take care of them.

The House voted 57-40 to override the veto of the tax increase and 66-28 to override Bevin's veto of the budget, with Republicans eager to assert their independence after a challenging year muddied by a sexual harassment scandal.

"And they serve to discourage anyone from wanting to be a teacher in Kentucky when the governor is bashing them on an nearly daily basis", McKim told WDRB News. The showdown between Kentucky teachers and Bevin ramped up in recent weeks after he warned educators that it was illegal for them to walkout. "As a mother, suggesting children were abused as a prop for his political rhetoric is disturbing and absurdly in poor taste".

The veto put Republican lawmakers in a tough position, asking them to vote a second time on a tax increase in an election year.

It also seemed odd watching Democrats voting to support a Republican governor, one a lot of them strongly dislike. "Well, that's a coward", said Republican Rep. Regina Huff, a middle school special education teacher. He vowed to call a special session "to pass a transparent and properly balanced budget" in a separate tweet.

Ross says the wanted to see the vetoes overridden because there were things she liked like increased SEEK funding, and transportation funding, although noting it's not ideal.

He said many parents could not afford to miss work Friday, especially in rural areas, and so their children were left unattended "and some of them in communities where people knew that for a fact and took advantage of it". "There's so much stuff that teachers provide in public school that is just a gift, and it's something that we have a right to and the kids have a right to".

Bevin responded to the outcome on Twitter, writing that he'd been meeting with House and Senate leaders all week to find a "more responsible way to pay for 100 percent of the requested education funding".

The agendas from Kentucky arrived amid educator protests at Oklahoma and Arizona more than instruction funding and educator cover. West Virginia teachers went on strike for more than a week in March, eventually receiving a 5 percent pay increase, Politico reported.
