Teachers Violated State Labor Law

An election-year investigation into teacher rallies at Kentucky’s Capitol found more than 1,000 educators violated state law by participating in protests that shut down some schools, Gov. Matt Bevin’s administration said recently.No penalties will be assessed, Kentucky’s labor secretary said, but he warned “the grace extended in this instance” won’t be applied if future work stoppages occur.“Those teachers who participated in this concerted effort were in clear violation of the law,” Labor Secretary David Dickerson said in a statement from the agency.
