As Oklahoma teachers declare victory, Colorado educators walk out of class

Teachers from Oolagah Okla. Melinda Dale from left Scarlett Sellmeyer and Sierra Ryan hold signs Tuesday at the Capitol in Oklahoma City as protests continue over school funding. After a day of teaching first-graders Dale cleans the school

At least 500 educators are expected to demonstrate at the state Capitol in Denver on Monday to push for more financial support, the Colorado Education Association says, in what will be just the latest in a wave of teacher protests at USA state capitols this year.

While the major event will be at the Capitol, there are also dozens of other planned protests throughout Colorado.

- Teacher pay: The CEA says Colorado educators' average pay has dropped by more than 17% when adjusting for inflation over the last 15 years.

The Pendleton School Board of Directors recently approved a policy that establishes a team-oriented approach to support teachers as they reach out to the traumatized students in their classrooms.

Spokespersons for the Denver and Adams 14 school districts told Denver7 Friday they did not expect their teachers to leave school.

DPS teachers will be pushing for lawmakers to support more funding for education.

The Asiakwa location of the Quality Education Now (QEN) project under the SOS Childrens Village Ghana (SOSCV) has organised a three- day capacity building workshop for pre-school teachers from public and private schools in the East Akim Municipality.

Careers education runs throughout the school to help students make the right choices as they consider their options for university and beyond.

They want the parents to know what the issues are. "I'm doing this so that the young teacher, that college student, who's thinking about becoming a teacher, isn't frightened away from this".

The wave of teacher protests has mostly occurred in states dominated by Republicans in the legislature and governors' offices, such as West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona and Kentucky.

Rusty Bradley, a high school technology teacher in Oklahoma for almost 28 years said "I'm fed up".

Nearly thirty Oklahoma schools have announced cancellation for Wednesday's classes and admitted that if they do not see a legislative change, the protests could continue through the week.

The CEA estimates that teachers spend on average $656 of their own money for school supplies for students, and the organization has long argued for higher pay and better benefits for Colorado teachers.

Districts across Colorado are participating in walk-ins.

The district's librarian, debate and drama programs and choir and music programs have all fallen causality to ongoing funding struggles, as have elementary and middle school foreign language classes, Marsaln-McBride said. According to a release, teachers will teach Friday morning and then head to the Capitol for a rally.
