    Default Teachers responsible for sexual assault & poisoning of children

    According to Kentucky guv Matt Bevin (R). The disingenuous dimwittery continues --

    Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin slammed protesting teachers with an outrageous accusation Friday evening, indicating they were responsible for the inevitable sexual assault or poisoning of children left home alone in his state because school was out.

    “I’m offended by the fact that people so cavalierly, and so flippantly, disregarded what’s truly best for children,” the Republican governor said at an impromptu news conference captured on video after teachers rallied at the state Capitol to stop school funding cuts......



    Kentucky Education Association President Stephanie Winkler told The Louisville Courier-Journal that she was “appalled” by Bevin’s remarks. Organizers said parents were given plenty of notice about school closings.

    Jefferson County Teachers Association President Brent McKim told the Courier-Journal that using Bevin’s logic, schools should never close.

    “The fact is, every school district did its level best to let parents know school was going to be closed with as much notice as possible,” McKim said. “The bottom line is that’s one day. He was cutting hundreds of millions of dollars from kids that would impact every day, and that’s what we were in Frankfort to stop. We were there with the overwhelming support and encouragement of our parents who know that we care about every student in our classes.”

    It reminds me of a newspaper manufactured outrage when we tried not putting the clocks back. They were outraged when a young girl was killed in a RTA because nothing had changed.
    Total dingbattery.

    Matt Bevin is a Tea Party Trumpist. Enuff sed.

    Beware, he has national political ambitions.

    That governor is a complete fool.
    Nothing else matters but how I raise my children ... and their opinion of me, as a father.

    The R-controlled passed resolutions condemning Bevin's remarks. I'd call that remarkable --

    It's an admission that the primary function of public education is day care. So the parents can go to work to make the money to have the freedom to send their children to private day care.

    Since he's taking so much flack for his idiotic remarks... Bevins 'mans up' and puts forward the limpest, most unimpressive of apologies --

    It's gotta be something in the water there, reference Mitch McConnell, Rand (and Ron) Paul, etc. Maybe something from the coal mines in the rivers ?

    Heh, by that extension the NRA members are responsible for all the gun crime in the USA.

    Probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Teachers shut down for one day - how about whole schools on 4 day week, EVERY WEEK, because of lack of funding.
    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/brown...y-school-week/

    Will he call the legislatures of these states out as murderers and child abusers?

    Funding down because right wing idiotic belief in the unfettered free market - even at the price of the education of children.

    Just insane!

    Mate, the right don't want the children of the proletariat competing for jobs with their own kids, they'll just find a comfy little war somewhere to get rid of the cannon fodder and pump borrowed Chinese money into the MIC so the 1%-10% get richer.

    Yes, such nihilism reinforces the degradation of society that Acton's Dictum describes, and the oligarchs are (mostly unwittingly, methinks) currently accomplishing.
