Second teacher ‘sick out’ gets mixed reaction

By Dave Taylor

Hancock County schools were closed again Friday after a second “sick out” in a month, as teachers from across the state called in sick to rally in Frankfort for more education spending, just weeks after holding a similar protest over changes in retirements for future teachers. The protests were a byproduct of a protracted and sometimes ugly public conflict between state leaders and teachers, which eventually led to two bills that seemed to please no one, but that ended a long ordeal that took the shine off the reputations of both sides.
