"Teachers are grateful for the raises, but that's not all we need". Teachers are marching because elements in the Colorado legislature are intentionally undermining public education.
"A week ago, I would have told you I wasn't going to do it", said the 48-year-old Army veteran who has worked in public schools for 18 years, as he drove to the state election board office to submit his paperwork to become a Democratic candidate in this fall's election.
Still, few people in the state seem to know many details about how their local schools perform or the way the state funds its schools - something that hasn't changed much over time.
"We, as staff members, are not here trying to boost our salaries".
The Oklahoma City-American Federation of Teachers, which like the OEA opposed the strike from the beginning, acknowledged Friday that a poll it had conducted showed overwhelming support for the continuation of the strike.

The poll showed 43 percent of voters opposed such a strike and 34 percent did not know what should be done. The prime minister "should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump", he said.
