Beshear, Republicans Set to Assist Teachers in 2020

Governor-elect Andy Beshear says he will have drafts of legislation ready to go the day he takes office to help the state’s teachers.

One of the cornerstones of his education plan is a a $2,000 pay raise for public school teachers — an incentive he said is needed to resolve a statewide teacher shortage.

He may not get much of a fight in the legislature, either. Kentucky House Majority Floor Leader John “Bam” Carney recently listed education as a top priority for House Republicans next session.

Friday, Beshear also reiterated his intention to reshape the Kentucky Board of Education with new appointees.
