FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — On Wednesday, Attorney General Andy Beshear and his Lieutenant Governor candidate, Jacqueline Coleman, stepped off the bus to discuss Beshear's education plan further.

In front of Frankfort High School, Beshear said not only is education a priority, he wants to put public schools, students and teachers first.

Beshear's plan includes reducing class size, adding more nurses and addressing teacher shortage.

He also pledged to not sign a budget unless it has sufficient funding for public education.

Gov. Matt Bevin has criticized Beshear before on this issue and has said that Beshear is making empty promises.
