Colorado teachers prepare for 'Day of Action'

Teachers used Friday's demonstration to oppose the OEA's back to work order

This is the first day back to school for many Oklahoma students following the two-week walkout by Oklahoma teachers.

The rally is organized by the Colorado Education Association, the state's largest teacher's union.

They plan to gather at the Capitol to lobby lawmakers on Monday and rally on the West Steps at 4:30 p.m. After years of being undervalued, teachers have swarmed the state Capitol and have pressured their lawmakers to better fund education.

As part of eight building blocks for change, the agenda calls for fair funding for public schools, including an independent review of the provincial funding formula, an end to EQAO testing and one secular school system for each official language.

The Arizona teachers are demanding a 20 percent pay hike from an average of $43,280 a year for elementary school teachers and annual pay of $46,470 for high school teachers.

Police Begin Manhunt For Abductors Of German
A resident who witnessed the incident said he saw the abductors bundling the German into their auto , while shooting in the air. The victim, it was gathered, is an engineer with a multi-national construction firm, Dantata and Sawoe Construction Company.

Last month, the Oklahoma Education Association announced that it is seeking a $10,000 pay raise for Oklahoma teachers over three years, a $5,000 pay raise for support professionals over three years, a cost-of-living adjustment for retirees, and the restoration of funding for education and core government services. Teachers are calling those walk-ins. An example is Kentucky House Bill 366, which would cut taxes of the state's wealthiest residents while increasing taxes of low-wage earners, according to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.

Unions are instrumental in improving public education.

Public schools are underfunded by $828 million this year, Dallman told the Post, and lawmakers have said they could inject at least $100 million more into schools-but they have yet to do so. Even as politicians throughout the country try to weaken unions, workers are still drawn to the needed leverage they provide.

As several hundred Colorado teachers marched to the state Capitol on Monday, FOX31 and Channel 2 received several emails asking why Colorado's marijuana money isn't being used for education funding.

When education is devalued, representation can show how rich of a resource it is.
