This is a growing trend as teachers in other states have been successful extorting more money out of taxpayers.
Across Arizona, parents, teachers, schools boards and superintendents are bracing for the likelihood of a walkout as educators pressure state leaders to act on their demands for 20 percent pay raises and more education funding.
Wednesday, educators in more than 1,000 Arizona public schools are expected to participate in non-disruptive “walk-in” demonstrations as part of the #RedForEd movement.
The demonstrations, which will mostly happen before the start of the school day, are intended to build more support from parents and school administrators.
Late Monday, organizers with Arizona Educators United, the teacher-led grass-roots group that launched the state’s #RedForEd movement, said they will move forward with a walkout.
