Gov. Andy Beshear’s win last November can be partially attributed to the army of teachers behind him. Funding our schools and taking care of teachers are central parts of this campaign too. Amy’s Educator’s Council is made up of current and retired teachers and advises her on the issues in our school systems. First on the podcast, a teacher at Wayne County High School talks with Amy about the widening opportunity gap during COVID-19. Then, a retired teacher takes us back to marching at the state capitol and how Mitch McConnell’s comments are just as incendiary to educators as Bevin’s in 2018.
