Today, after the Cameron campaign re-released their latest effort to try and distract from Daniel Cameron and Robby Mills’ terrible record on public education, Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman offered this response:
“Daniel Cameron has spent his time in office attacking our teachers and advocating to weaken our public schools with vouchers that would send public tax dollars to private schools. The plan he rolled out doesn’t even offer raises to teachers in the classroom today, and it’s not fooling anybody.”
- Cameron and Mills support a plan that would pour millions of taxpayer dollars meant for public schools into unaccountable private schools, and could exacerbate the teacher shortage.
- Cameron also backed Matt Bevin’s unconstitutional “sewer bill,” going so far as to select Robby Mills as a running mate who not only voted for, but helped lead the way on Bevin’s plan to strip pensions from teachers.
- Cameron’s hand-picked running mate Mills even voted to give himself and his fellow legislators a raise, but not teachers, and sponsored a bill this year that makes it harder for teachers to negotiate for better working conditions.
