Colorado teachers push for more school funding

"We're all in this thing together", Poudre School District teacher Charlie McNamee said. Yet there are stark, partisan divides about whether arming teachers and other school officials with guns - as President Trump has suggested - is a good way to respond to fears about gun violence on campus.

Teachers in Oklahoma and Kentucky recently joined the ranks of educators on strike for better wages. We have done more with less for a decade.

To add to this heartache, young teachers in NC have never known anything different, and many even believe our current reality is normal.

The Englewood School District was closed Monday because of a lack of substitutes to cover the teachers who walked out.

The new poll of 1,704 California adult residents, conducted from March 25-April 3 in the wake of the recent Parkland, Florida shooting, is the first time the think tank has asked about school shootings in particular and the notion of arming teachers. A government that would cut education funding while roughly a fourth of the state's children live below the poverty level is automatically suspect. 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. Today, we are giving you one of the options in which you can enrol your child in his/her education. Thousands of teachers and their supporters converged on the state capitol Friday, the day after the union urged them to return to their classrooms. "We took a stand", Evans said. The city has no authority over education, but the city expended some time and money studying the possibility of a city school system but determined it was not feasible.

Take some cues from West Virginia and start with an overall 5 percent raise for all state employees. That way we don't inadvertently leave out vital school personnel like bus drivers and custodians.

Colorado teachers push for more school funding

". we intend to make a calendar revision for the upcoming school year and each year thereafter where school will not be in session on election day in November", wrote Yukon Superintendent Jason Simeroth, in a letter posted Thursday. Set some goals. Here's a catchy one: increase NC teacher pay to 20th in the nation by 2020. A plan to bring Apple to the schools. One popular narrative, especially for national outlets, was that the walkout was a red-state revolt, where teachers pushed back on almost a decade of Republican dominance. Our goal is to get real legislative action and commitments. Now every candidate in the 2018 NC state House and Senate races faces a challenger.

Since West Virginia, everything we thought we knew about the organized labor landscape has shifted. Unlike in those states, Colorado's teachers work under collective bargaining agreements that prohibit strikes. They say they want more money and resources for teachers and students.

The results of the walkout are being closely monitored in Kentucky, where some school districts will be closed due to teacher strikes next week.

"I'm fortunate to work in an environment where I'm supported, trusted and actively encouraged by my headteacher to take risks and try new ideas, as well as alongside an wonderful group of teachers and support staff who understand the importance of creating a deep, genuine and firmly embedded reading for pleasure culture".

He explains: "Teachers are at a point where they're frustrated, and they feel like their voices aren't being heard, and the only way to be heard, and to get the attention of the public, is to do something drastic". Their answer: nine days. Therefore, it is necessary every school that they should provide the healthy environment to the students like home.
