A Year After #RedForEd, Arizona Teachers Don't Think Legislators Have Done Enough
One year ago this month, educators around Arizona were wearing red and ramping up to what would become the largest teacher walkout in state history.
Now, the teachers behind the #RedForEd movement say the state has not done enough — schools are still underfunded and there are still not enough teachers in Arizona classrooms. Now, they're pushing for more funding from the Legislature, which is debating the 2019 budget as well was a voter initiative to fund education.
For more on what teachers are calling for, The Show spoke with Joe Thomas, president of the Arizona Education Association, the state’s largest teachers union.
