Colorado teachers to rally at Capitol for school funding

More marijuana tax dollars doesn't necessarily mean more money for student funding or teacher pay.

"The Foundation remains committed to working with its partners to provide an exceptional education for all children in OKCPS", said Mary Melon, President and CEO of The Foundation of Oklahoma City Public Schools.

As teachers continue to mobilize across the country, it is even more necessary to support the unions that are fighting alongside educators to improve the state of public schools.

These movements were largely inspired by a nine-day statewide teacher walkout in West Virginia that began February 22, resulting in their winning the 5 percent pay increase they wanted.

Teachers in Arizona are voting this week on whether to stage a classroom walkout, after previously conducting several walk-in protests in which they demonstrated outside their respective schools before walking in with students to conduct classes. Not surprisingly, lawmakers who serve corporate interests want to reduce unions' power and membership.

As a result of the teacher walkout, the district announced that it would be adding one hour to the end of each school day through the end of the year.

"It's about the fact that Colorado has the top performing economy in the country, and yet our schools are still funded at or near the bottom", List said. "I guarantee you somewhere today a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent doesn't have any money to take care of them".

"This first planned organized activity is to raise awareness", McNamee said. The state's teacher salaries rank 46th out of 50, with educators making an average of $46,000 per year.

"I've taught for over 34 years and it's getting worse instead of better".

But Preist said the efforts by teachers to win more money for education is not over. Because of insufficient budgets, 20 percent of the state's school districts were forced to cut the school week to four days.

"We are proud of the teachers, administrators, support staff and families who went to the Capitol to fight for our children".
