Su Sheridan holds a sign protesting proposed cuts to retirement benefits for public school teachers on Thursday, March 8, 2018 in Frankfort, Ky. An art teacher at Elkhorn Middle School, Sheridan was one of hundreds of educators in at least 28 central Kentucky schools to hold a "walk in" on Thursday. Lawmakers say the bill is necessary to save the pension system from insolvency. But Sheridan said she and other teachers are willing to strike if that's what it takes to convince lawmakers not to pass it.
