The KEA misled these teachers initially in opposition to the bill addressing the pension benefits. When it became undeniably clear that there was nothing wrong with that bill, the Communist elements encouraged their uninformed teacher base into this sudden change in their stated reasons for demonstrating. It's typical bait and switch tactics by a destructive KEA and their continued efforts to oppose any Republican in office. It is another disgusting abuse of journalistic and anti-Governor elements to disregard the two years of FULL teacher pension funding under the current Republican Governor, while the previous two administrations of Democrats failed every year to fully fund that necessity. The teachers following the Federal Department of Education Title Five guidelines to indoctrinate, brainwash per Eric Holder guidelines and their subsequent failures to neutrally educate students in basic civic responsibilities, should be flushed out of the system.

The average teacher in KY makes $50,451, as of March 29, 2018, not including bonus and benefits. SO the average teacher makes around $58K with bonuses. This comes to $46/hr for 180 days work, plus golden retirement and health packages.

The average person works 260 days a year. No wonder the teachers are on strike.

Some teachers take the profession as a way of life, they enjoy stimulating the mind of students.
THEN there is the remaining 75 percent. They went to college and became teachers cause=

Itís not 180 days of work.

Most teachers donít get a lunch break.

Many have to work evenings and weekends. Planning and grading happens at the teachers home.

And most have to pay for materials to provide an interesting and enriching educational experience to their students.

And it appears in Kentucky, West Virginia and Oklahoma that the buildings, desks and environment are sub par.

Add in those who choose to come into the school building early in August and stay late into June to set up and tear down their classrooms for cleaning.

That leaves about 5 weeks to get all those extra things done that teachers cannot do during the regular school year, that the rest of us can take personal days to do, for example, medical appointments.

Taking a day off is very challenging during the school year. Most teachers put off medical procedures putting their health at risk to avoid the disruption of having to rely on a substitute.
