Emilie Blanton Talks Back To School

August 12, 2020

Jazmin is out this week so Robert invited back Emilie Blanton, a high school teacher and member of the Jefferson County Teachers Association Board of Directors, to talk about starting school in JCPS remotely.  Robert and Emilie talked about how the union decided to push for an all-NTI opening and some of her concerns about equity in the current situation.  They touched on how NTI looks this year compared to next year, the role of the union in policy-making in Louisville, and lots of other subjects.

Emilie stuck around and talked to Robert about this weeks news. Within the COVID-19 story, the pair explained recommendations the Governor made about the start of school, the Secretary of State's plan for the election, and plenty of other subjects.  Also discussed were a crackdown by LMPD on protestors blocking intersections.
