Colorado teachers to rally at Capitol for school funding

Teachers met inside the capitol to discuss a way forward for the strike

Many districts, meanwhile, reopened again Monday after the Oklahoma Education Association, the state's largest teacher's union, announced late last week that they were ending the ongoing walkout after nine days. Many teachers in Virginia have had to get second jobs in order to pay for their expenses and families, especially during the summers when they aren't working.

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.

Teachers say it's about more than a salary raise.

The Englewood School District canceled classes ahead of the movement because so many teachers are expected to participate.

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

Steve Collins, who follows 9NEWS on Twitter, said what he most wanted to know about the protests was "If they are so concerned about the kids, are they not DOING THEIR jobs today?". Normally, priced at $120 per year and available on the spark for education website, now free of charge, "enables students to express themselves via graphics, Web stories and video to complete their school assignments and showcase digital creativity", says Adobe. "You can not pay rent for a one bedroom in Denver on a teachers' salary". He likened being a teacher to "becoming a father".

The rapper added: "Some people have to work within the existing consciousness while some people can shift the consciousness". He made his first public appearance alongside West at his February 2016 Yeezy Season fashion show release party in NY .

They rallied outside the building Monday, holding signs and chanting slogans like "You left me no choice".

In Lewis' 17 years of teaching, he's seen the industry change.

The Colorado Education Association wrote that based on a survey of more than 2,200 of its members, educators are spending, on average, $656 per year out of their own pockets to buy students pencils, glue, binders, snacks and toothpaste, and covering costs of school lunch and field trips.

"If we want to recruit and retain teachers, we have to offer a living wage and a viable retirement", Roman said.

Colorado ranks 40th in spending per student, according to the AP.
