Ky. Education Commissioner warns of possible teacher layoffs

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Funding cuts could cause Kentucky school districts to cut up to 2,000 teachers.  That's the warning from Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday.

The state Department of Education is asking for $336 million more in state funding, to get back to where funding was before the recession.

Holliday says tax reform and expanded gambling revenue could give the state more money for education.  Lawmakers have said they would like to restore funding cuts to Kentucky school districts if they're able to.
