USA teachers eye elections for school funding gains

USA teachers eye elections for school funding gains

As many educators from across the state rallied Friday in Frankfort, hundreds of students, many chanting "fund public schools" and holding signs with a variety of sayings, such as "I love my public school", walked out of two area high schools in a support of their teachers. Thousands of teachers and students alike flooded the Oklahoma state Senate to advocate for legislative action of additional funding. "We have wonderful teachers already in our classrooms, and we are excited to add to our team next year". Student living and learning conditions are central to the work teachers do. She also describes her firm belief in teachers encouraging student activism. Over and over again, our NC legislature has chosen to cut taxes for those who can most afford it and cut public education funding and services for the most vulnerable.

Put plainly, public school employees in NC should be looking at the growing slew of red states in various stages of teacher revolt and notice what perhaps should have always been obvious: it's hard to fire teachers for standing up for our rights; there is no one to replace us.

Kentucky public school teachers rally for a "day of action" at the Kentucky State Capitol to try to pressure legislators to override Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin's recent veto of the state's tax and budget bills April 13, 2018, in Frankfort, Kentucky. "While the walkout is ending today, and we're going back to school, we are not just giving up and going home".

It added: "The system utilised teachers, pupils, support and office staff, so creating a reading community". Despite this, school officials in the state's largest school district announced Friday night that they would open schools Monday morning.

Explaining why she was still on strike, Rachel, a third-grade teacher, told the WSWS, "My only goal is for my students. What they are passionate about is you". Kentucky teachers, who protested at the state capitol building earlier this month, were incensed over pension troubles as well.

On Feb. 13, McCauley sent an email survey out to gauge how many other superintendents and local school boards like Bartlesville's would stand by their teachers if they made a decision to walk.

"I will be here every day fighting for them, writing emails, whatever needs to happen to ensure they get the education they deserve". At 10 a.m. CEA members will start meeting with their elected senators and representatives.

Scott Silva, an Englewood High School English teacher, said they had support from the administration. We understand if you can't do everything at once.

Dozens of Colorado teachers are at the state Capitol pushing for more money for schools.

Teachers in Colorado are joining those from other states in asking for more money for schools.

Any increase in education funding would need to come from other programs, since the state can not increase taxes without a public referendum. They want to have their voices heard, but they don't want to disrupt school.

The struggle in Oklahoma will be immeasurably strengthened through establishing a network of rank-and-file committees across the country to prepare a nationwide strike to defend public education against both big business parties, which are squandering trillions on corporate tax cuts and new and even bloodier wars.
