We’re big fans of teachers. Just not so much the overpaid nitwits who run their unions.

EpiPen Saves Madison County Student’s Life
A Madison County student was in the right place at the right time when she started to have a severe allergic reaction.
Luckily for the student, she was able to get a shot from an EpiPen from the nurse; a shot that saved her life.
But thanks to a new state law that encourages schools to have their own EpiPens, Madison County is one of the few systems ready for these kind of emergencies.
“The ambulance driver said how fortunate we were that she was given an EpiPen shot without a prescription,” McDaniel said.
McDaniel said her daughter was tested for allergies when she was young but had no idea she had devolved any over the years.
She was told had her daughter not had the shot, the outcome could’ve been drastically different.
The Madison school district started carrying a stockpile of EpiPens in June 2013 and since then, they’ve had to use them twice.
This is an issue covered heavily on Page One the past couple years:
- Why The Heck Aren’t Epi-Pens In Every School??? [February 18, 2013]
- More On Putting EpiPens In Kentucky Schools [February 20, 2013]
- The Kentucky School Boards Association Is Now Openly Fighting EpiPens, Spreading Misinformation [February 22, 2013]
- School Boards Assoc. Lying About EpiPen Costs [February 26, 2013]
- The EpiPen Bill Passed The General Assembly [March 8, 2013]
That’s right. JCPS/JCTA decided to remain “neutral” on the issue. While secretly fighting against it.
And now we’re seeing just what a costly mistake that could be.
