A bill focusing on teacher misconduct is now headed to the full House in Kentucky.
From 2016 thru 2021, the Educational Professional Standards Board revealed 194 instances in the state, where teachers licenses were voluntarily surrendered, suspended, or revoked.
The report said two-thirds of the instances involved sexual wrongdoing.
