Stephanie Winkler speaking to MCDWC and MC Women’s Network, Feb. 10, 2014.

Our speaker for the night was Stephanie Winkler who is the current president of KEA.  She spoke explaining KEPAC, what it does and how to join.  Then she answered questions about things that her office requires her to look into on behalf of Kentucky’s students and teachers.  She mentioned that she is determined to keep the retirement programs for teachers and staffs strong.  She also answered questions about funding of schools saying that she was pleased with Gov. Beshear’s proposed budget which brings the level of funding for public schools up.  She answered questions about charter schools, giving her reasons for opposing these “for profit schools” which take money away from current public schools.  We are very grateful for her coming to talk to us and giving us this chance to ask as many questions as we liked.

Bill is coming!!!!!
