KY Schools Additional Funding

As Kentucky schools brace re-opening amid COVID-19, Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman has requested additional funding, saying as a former teacher she understands the burden felt by public schools.“I’m a teacher and was an assistant principal before I ran for office and we are very accustomed to hearing, ‘Here’s all these things that we want you to do but we don’t have any money to give you to do it and we need you to figure it out.’ That is pretty common. This is different. Because this is literally life or death. If schools are going to go back to in-person classes and have kids in the building and adults in the building. They’re going to need additional funds for PPE,” said Coleman.
