  • Not backing down

    Local educators and their supporters took to the streets last week to show their disapproval of Senate Bill 1, which would cut pensions for teachers and state workers. On Thursday, March 15, the Marion County Education Association, teachers, education staff, supporters and students gathered at Lebanon Elementary School to march in protest against the cuts. 

    Greg Conley, Project Lead the Way Teacher at Marion County High School, was present at the march to stand alongside his colleagues in opposition of the bill. 

  • Marion County teachers protest Senate Bill 1

    The Kentucky Senate is currently considering a proposed pension reform bill, Senate Bill 1, which could cut educators pension and cost of living expenses drastically. 

    According to Ellen McFall, president of the Marion County Education Association (MCEA) and library media specialist at Lebanon Elementary School, these proposed budget cuts would affect Marion County teachers directly, ensuring fewer teachers in schools for the next year.
