And, parent unrest is starting to surface
Short-notice wildcat teacher sick outs during Kentucky’s current legislative session have already caused a lot of pain for Kentucky parents. On several recent occasions, parents in a number of Kentucky school districts have received a less-than-24-hour notice that schools were being cancelled so teachers could go and fuss at legislators in Frankfort. In consequence, such things as arranging baby sitting and providing for students’ lunches suddenly became a parent problem.
But, things are now getting kicked up a notch. Teachers are again threatening walkouts tomorrow, March 12, 2019, the date scheduled for all Kentucky public school 11th grade students to take the ACT college entrance test. Will there be enough teachers to administer the tests?
Will there even be ACT testing tomorrow? In which, if any school districts?
Talk about disruption! And, parents are not happy.
