Arizona teachers historic statewide walkout is latest demonstration in #RedForEd movement

Colorado teachers held a similar protest on Thursday.

"I feel like funding for the schools should be at the top of the list", said Brandon Hartley, a charter school teacher from the Phoenix suburb of Peoria who brought his 7-year-old son to the rally at the Arizona Capitol. While money has been the primary issue, teachers also have pushed for systemic changes they insist are needed to protect public education. It ended with the decertification of all 13 unions.

The unions are above all determined to prevent the unification of the struggles of teachers in Arizona and Colorado, as this would threaten to develop into a much broader movement that would challenge the Democratic and Republican parties.

The measure was filed by David Lujan, director of the Arizona Center for Economic Progress and Mesa teacher Joshua Buckley. "They've both been cutting education".

Meanwhile, the strike that has closed most schools entered its second day on Friday, with another rally on the Capitol lawn.

Ducey, meantime, remains adamant that teachers should return to their classrooms as his plan gives him the raise they want, even if it doesn't include specific dollars for support staff and even if it does not spell out how the state intends to bring aid to schools back to where it was a decade earlier.

As thousands of teachers in Arizona and Colorado mark their second day of walkouts Friday, there are also rumblings of possible strikes in other states, with educators throughout the country demanding more funding and higher pay. "This plan benefits our children's education across the state, and we are working through the weekend to introduce a budget early next week and pass it shortly thereafter".

"I had a student in my homeroom ask me why they aren't good enough to have real books", Soyka said. "It's directed out of our building, so we should pay attention to it and listen to them". On April 11, more than 100,000 school workers, students, parents and supporters participated in walk-ins at schools across the state.

It would permit schools to use some of those dollars for pay raises for support staff, people not included in the governor's plan. Last recession, we cut a bunch of education funding. Without new taxes, that money would inevitably come from other social services.

"We have no bill".

"It's official: We have a deal!" "The devil is in the details". It also would raise individual rates 4.46% for individuals who earn more than $500,000. They have to gather 150,642 valid signatures on petitions in just the next 68 days - or more than 2,200 signatures a day. Governors of those states insist their teacher strike talks haven't been influenced by school choice options.

Talks of rallying in Nevada have started gaining traction, with at least one school district calling on lawmakers to find a solution to the school's poor funding and low salaries.

A case in point are recent comments by an Oklahoma state senator on teacher pay. "I'm disappointed they won't have a conversation", she told the publication. "So, I think. we will have to repeal the increase in the minimum salary schedule".

The movement for increased teacher pay and school funding has prompted walkouts in other Republican-led states like West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kentucky and left lawmakers scrambling to meet teacher demands. A hundred and sixty thousand new private sector jobs in three years.
