TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - Teachers from more than 20 schools plan to hold walk-in demonstrations on Wednesday, May 15, as they fight to keep the Red for Ed movement alive.
Educators say last year's walkout brought little change and said there's still a lot of work to be done.
They hope Wednesday's demonstrations get the attention of lawmakers as they work on next year's budget.
They say there’s still a lack of funding in schools.
“We’re at the bottom of the barrel in almost every metric for public education funding. So we’re just trying to get the word out that - no things were not fixed by last year’s walkout. We made very small changes,” said Wes Oswald, a third-grade teacher at Manso Elementary School.
Meanwhile, Gov. Doug Ducey says education is his priority. His budget includes millions for public school funding.
Here's a list provided by the Arizona Educators United organization of schools participating in Wednesday's walk-ins or demonstrations.
