Colorado teachers plan Monday walkout to call for higher pay, better funding

Colorado teachers plan Monday walkout to call for higher pay, better funding

Some lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been fighting for extra K-12 education funding meant for teacher pay to be put into the state budget or other bills, but there has been fighting between lawmakers in different parties and the Joint Budget Committee over how to spend the extra money now in state coffers.

But Preist said the efforts by teachers to win more money for education is not over. The association is asking its members to wear red - reminiscent of what teachers in Arizona have been doing in a campaign they've called #RedForEd. "Once we understand our common ground, there is much less chance for stereotypes, hatred and crime".

Kelly Marsaln-McBride, an eighth-grade science and leadership teacher with Berryhill Public Schools, said the education union doesn't speak for her.

"We need our schools fully funded", Young said.

The district's librarian, debate and drama programs and choir and music programs have all fallen causality to ongoing funding struggles, as have elementary and middle school foreign language classes, Marsaln-McBride said.

Drew University students are teaching their counterparts at Madison High School about the value of diversity.

DPS teachers will be pushing for lawmakers to support more funding for education. According to a release, teachers will teach Friday morning and then head to the Capitol for a rally. The large amount of teachers who called in on Monday forced the district to cancel classes, due to lack of substitute teachers. They are also hoping to secure a stable retirement program. "I want them to get off their butts and do something".

"Some were introduced to drugs for the first time - because they were vulnerable and left alone", he added.

"People fear the unknown", said Nusrat, an economics major.

Kentucky legislators voted on Friday to override Bevin's veto of a two-year state budget that increased education funding through a $480 million tax increase. As you can tell from the actions in West Virginia and Oklahoma, teachers are fed up with students lacking educational resources. The strike ended March 6 when Republican Gov. Jim Justice signed the bill granting a 5 percent pay raise to all state employees.

"West Virginia woke us up", Joe Thomas, president of the Arizona Education Association, told cheering teachers at a rally in Phoenix last month.
