Education Bills That Sparked Teacher Protests Are Unlikely To Pass

(Frankfort, KY) - A pair of education bills that sparked protests from teachers across the state are unlikely to pass this session, according to lawmakers.

One of the bills would have restructured the teacher pension board and the other would have created a scholarship tax credit program.

Teacher protests led to sickouts that closed schools at several points during the legislative session.

Jefferson and Bullitt County Schools remain closed on Thursday due to a large amount of teacher absences.
