Kentucky gov: 'I guarantee' children sexually assaulted, poisoned because of teacher protests

  • Interactive map: Which KY districts are closed Friday

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said today that he guarantees a child was sexually assaulted due to absent teachers in over 30 school districts while they rallied at the state Capitol in Frankfort. Lawmakers did override Bevin vetoes and the new spending became law.

"I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them".

As they have several times this year, hundreds of Kentucky teachers descended on Frankfort, the capital, on Friday to urge lawmakers to override the governor's vetoes.

Bevin's comments came as thousands of teachers gathered in Frankfort on Friday to protest Bevin's signing of a bill to overhaul the state's pension system. It's unclear if the House will act on the resolution.

That prompted Bevin to take a shot at Hoover on social media shortly after the House voted 57-40 to override the veto of the tax and revenue bill.

Attorney General Andy Beshear, the Kentucky Education Association and the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police filed a lawsuit against Bevin on Wednesday, seeking to block the pension bill.

Members of the teachers union also were critical of Bevin's vetoes of budget and revenue bills, both of which the union said are crucial to funding public education.

When asked about work stoppages during a news conference on March 30, KEA president Stephanie Winkler said all options were on the table, but that state law prohibits strikes.

McDaniel later told reporters he does not expect to see new budget and tax bills, only a "cleanup" bill to correct some errors made in House Bill 366, such as the inadvertent removal of a tax incentive used by Toyota and General Electric.

Bevin also dissed protesting teachers for "hangin' out, shoes off. smokin', leavin' trash around, takin' the day off".

"We have to generate more revenue as a state", Shively said. But 57 Republicans eagerly voted to override, asserting their independence after a tumultuous year marred by a sexual harassment scandal. Earlier this month when lawmakers voted to pass a bill that preserves benefits or most workers but moves new hires into a hybrid plan.

A Pike group official said the effort in that Eastern Kentucky county goes against the wishes of the Kentucky Education Association, which has taken a cautious approach to school closures that is frustrating many Pike County teachers. They are instead focused on education funding and a battle over their pensions.

If public education doesn't get additional funding, Busch said, more families will turn to charter and private schools, some of which won't accept students with special needs or will make them pay more to attend.

"That's why teachers were in Frankfort, not to stand up for themselves, but to stand up for funding for their schools and their kids so they'd have what they need to help them be successful".

"With that reasoning we would never have any vacation or breaks in school, and who knows what would happen in the summer", he said.

This fall, all 100 seats in the state House are up for re-election and half of the 38 seats in the Senate.

The agendas from Kentucky arrived amid educator protests at Oklahoma and Arizona more than instruction funding and educator cover.
