SEND BEVIN PACKING
A Dec. 28 article in The Wall Street Journal stated that government data show teachers and “other public education employees, such as community-college faculty, school psychologists and janitors, are quitting their jobs at the fastest rate on record.”
“The educators may be finding new jobs at other schools, or leaving education altogether: The departures come alongside protests this year in six states where teachers in some cases shut down schools over tight budgets, small raises and poor conditions,” the article said.
Kentucky is one of those six states. Instead of supporting our hardworking teachers, Tea Party Gov. Matt Bevin has tried to prove our public school system is broken, so he can “fix” it with charter schools.
Born in Colorado and raised in New Hampshire, Bevin supposedly took a liking to Kentucky while stationed at Fort Knox in 1990, yet I’ve never heard him say one good thing about our state. Instead he constantly finds fault and makes problems.
Our educators and our children deserve much better than this carpetbagging-troublemaker, poor-excuse for a governor. My New Year’s resolution is to send Bevin back to Colorado or New Hampshire or anywhere outside Kentucky in November 2019.
