The Fight For Education
*This is a special edition of Bourbon and Babies, dedicated to the support of all the amazing teachers in Kentucky. The state of Kentucky is finding itself trapped in a fight over the future of public education. As teachers are swarming Frankfort, creating sick-outs which are closing our schools, many parents are feeling the inconvenience and getting angry, and rightfully so. Our kids should be in school! This is a shared sentiment by many, but most do not understand the facts and reasoning behind these sick-outs and why it is imperative that teachers and parents alike band together to help sustain or elevate the state of public education. This episode will help shed light on the issues at hand and hopefully help everyone to understand just what teachers are fighting for and what is at stake if we lose.
