Colorado teachers to rally at Capitol for school funding

Teachers met inside the capitol to discuss a way forward for the strike

He said because funding is so low, he feels his students don't have the resources they need to succeed.

Several teachers made their way to the state Capitol on Monday morning, demanding more funding for education.

The protests prompted Englewood Schools to cancel class for the day after roughly 150 teachers told the district that they would be rallying at the Capitol.

That wave has notably seen teachers in West Virginia get a 5% pay raise last month after a nine-day strike.

"I work two jobs".

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

"We have a team working on action plans to help everybody learn and grow on how to respond to our students", Smith said.

Hundreds of teachers not only marched on Monday, but also asked state lawmakers to make a change.

But advocates are pushing for more because the state is now underfunding schools by about $830 million, Dallman said.

Lawmakers raised taxes to permanently increase educators' salaries by an average of $6,100 a year, increase classroom spending and give support staff a raise. An overall demand from the teachers in Arizona was a 20% raise and public education to be brought back to pre-recession levels. Extrapolating that to the full association, members may be spending as much as $23 million per year out of pocket, according to its website.

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

"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.
