Interview with Emilie Blanton & Don Bacon, Plus Pardons

December 18, 2019

This week we interviewed two JCPS teachers -- Emilie Blanton and Don Bacon.  They talked to us about why teachers stayed so engaged in this year's election, what they expect in the next session, and what JCPS teachers need from their leaders.  It's a revealing conversation that touches on many important topics.

Jazmin and Robert talked about Gov. Bevin's pardons, which have consumed the news media this week.  Jazmin explained how and why the pardon power is important, and what Governor Bevin's final pardons mean.  Also discussed are Wayne Lewis leaving Kentucky, Governor Beshear rescinding the Medicaid work requirement, and school systems suits against JUUL.
