Teachers march to state Capitol to demand more classroom funding

Teachers march to state Capitol to demand more classroom funding

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

Englewood Schools Superintendent Wendy Rubin says that over 70 percent of the district's teachers are expected to be absent.

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. Many of them were using their personal days off to attend and say they left behind lesson plans for their substitutes. And, they said those delegates would keep returning for as long as it takes. According to the National Education Association, Colorado teachers average $US46,000 per year, and rural-based Colorado teachers can make as little as $US30,000.

"Several classes and schools in the province will be merged with each other as a temporary solution to the teacher shortage", said Huynh Minh Thuan, director of the Gia Lai Department of Education and Training.




"The positive state revenue forecast clearly demonstrates there is substantially more money available this year and therefore we can and must do a better job funding our public schools", Dallman said.

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

Low funding and teacher pay, the association says, is making the job less attractive to college graduates and prodding teachers to leave the profession early, and led to a shortage of fully qualified teachers. He likened being a teacher to "becoming a father". Her 22-year-old daughter is a first-year teacher, and Smith says she can't afford to move out on her own.

They rallied outside the building Monday, holding signs and chanting slogans like "You left me no choice". "ETFO's education agenda calls for greater student access to specialist teachers to provide more support in the arts and physical education as well as more guidance teachers and teacher-librarians". Per-pupil spending in Colorado has ranked near the bottom in the nation.
