LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Cautiously optimistic, that's how critic of the Jefferson County School District are reacting to the tentative agreement with the Teachers Association.
But, Pastor Jerry Stephenson, a Louisville minister and long-time JCPS critic, doesn't believe the deal goes far enough.
Stephenson was among the group of African American ministers who gathered outside JCPS headquarters last week, calling on the school board to negotiate a contract that benefits students and not just teachers.
But, the tentative contract does address at least one issue the ministers raised. It gives principals more authority to hire teachers that fit their schools.
Stephenson says he won't pass final judgment on this deal until all the details have been released. But, from what Stephenson has seen so far, the tentative contract needs more work.
The deal must be approved by the school board and the teachers association before it becomes final. Stephenson says the ministers' group would like to meet with the board before it takes a vote.
