Demanding Arizona Put Schools Over Corporate Tax Cuts, Teachers Approve Statewide Strike

Julia Conley, staff writer

After an overwhelming majority of teachers in Arizona voted on Thursday night to approve a strike over chronically low teacher salaries and harsh austerity measures that have left the state's public schools struggling, Arizona is poised to become the latest Republican-controlled state to see educators standing up for labor and children's rights.

The Arizona Education Association (AEA) said that 78 percent of the 57,000 teachers who voted support a walkout that would take place next week.

These educators are awesome!

How about, We all Strike, everybody, until the Tax Scam Bill is completely reversed?

Yeah!

I agree that these educators are “awesome” for representing the students and their communities, not just their own wages. Bravo!

I give them credit for finally standing up. Now a warning…teachers they are going to try to crush you. It is not going to be pleasant. Stay united and don’t give up or you will be in an even worse position then when you started. People help them any way you can because they are going to need it.
