Kentucky governor apologizes for Expression teacher strike led to assaults

Kentucky governor apologizes for Expression teacher strike led to assaults

The governor said this caused "hundreds of thousands of children" to be left alone at home and "vulnerable".

On Friday, Senate President Robert Stivers said he would hate it if Bevin's comments "marred" his accomplishments.

"It is not my intent to hurt anybody in the process, but to help us all move forward together", he said.

"I do again- I'm sorry for those of you, every single of one of you, that has been hurt by things that I have said". "You are quite right - we all need each other".

Bevin's videotaped apology was posted to his YouTube page on Sunday, two days after his initial comments sparked criticism from Democrats and Republicans in his state.

"Sometimes the words that people say, the way in which they say it, or just the misunderstanding that comes from that can also have unintended consequences and I think that is what happened from the very things I said", Bevin said in the video. "It was not my intent whatsoever", the governor said.

That same day, Bevin blasted the teachers for taking the day off to protest.

At least 44 school districts closed Friday as teachers marched on the state capitol in call on legislators to override the governor's veto of the state's budget and tax plan. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children". Our prevention training efforts have reached more than 3,000 Kentuckians.

Bevin said he has several family members who are public school teachers and said the issue is "near and dear" to him.

Acting-House Speaker David Osborne said he didn't understand why Bevin made the statement because he didn't hear of any problems that arose from the protests. Zimmerman noted that the first-term Kentucky governor had made an apology.

Wisconsin Republicans say Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin is still scheduled to speak at the party's convention in May despite Bevin's comments that children were sexually assaulted or poisoned while Kentucky teachers rallied against his state budget last week. "His insults of teachers over the past year have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official".
