Kentucky Law Eases Transition to Teaching Career

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) — Gov. Matt Bevin ceremonially signed the recently enacted Senate Bill 117 on Monday, allowing more veterans to easily transition into becoming teachers.

Bevin was joined by the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Max Wise (R) Taylor County, and the Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs commissioner, Norman Arflack.

Wise sponsored the bill after receiving a letter from a veteran asking for help, expressing concern that the old law restricted veterans from becoming teachers unless they had more schooling in a specific content subject.
