The educators don't all agree on whether the General Assembly should override Gov. Matt Bevin'sveto of the state budget bill, but there is a consensus that teachers will keep up the pressure until they get the funding result they want.
Erlanger-Elsmere and Gallatin County school districts announced ahead of time Thursday that they are closing so teachers can head to Frankfort and protest pension reform.
Senate budget Chairman Chris McDaniel quickly responded, saying that legislators budgeted about $96 million in "excess funds" - in other words, more income than spending - and they added $50 million more to the state's "rainy day" reserve fund. "I guarantee you somewhere today a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent doesn't have any money to take care of them", Gov. Bevin said. "I don't know that it's true for them", said Goodman.
The governor's response to the striking teachers sparked outcry and disbelief from state lawmakers and educators. But 57 House Republicans, later joined by just enough Senate Republicans, voted to override, asserting their independence after a tumultuous year marred by a sexual harassment scandal.
Bevin had vetoed both bills, warning the new taxes would not generate enough money to cover the new spending.
"Raises roughly $480 million in new revenue to put towards our pension systems, to restore cuts to education that were important to us, and so I think there will be a positive effect on the budget as a whole", Meredith mentioned.

In Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey's announcement Thursday of a plan to give teachers 20% pay raises by 2020 was met with some skepticism.
He also said the pension bill, House Bill 151, which was signed, was a start to the growing pension problems in the state, but did not solve the problem. They wanted the vetoes to stand, forcing the governor to call a special session of the state legislature to pass a new budget. They are instead focused on education funding and a battle over their pensions. "And it's a shame", Bevin said.
When asked by a WDRB News reporter about the teachers who rallied on Friday, Bevin spent more than a minute describing how he believed the closed schools may have contributed to people preying on children. "We don't know the details".
Also at issue is the state's pension legislation, signed by the governor on Tuesday, providing new guidelines for most state workers.
