Governor signs bill to provide child abuse education for school personnel
March 20, 2015
Thanks to Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, who we have learned has signed SB 119, which will ensure that educators across the Commonwealth receive critical training and information on how to recognize signs of child abuse.
With 49 kids experiencing abuse every day in Kentucky, more than half of them school-aged, it’s essential that professionals who interact with children in their classrooms be equipped to keep kids safe. This legislation supports the great work already being done by Kentucky teachers and gives them another tool to help Kentucky kids succeed, in school and in life.
Thanks to Gov. Beshear, and to members of the General Assembly for caring about Kentucky’s kids.
