As an educator, I am proud that I voted "yes" for a walkout because ALL educators deserve a 20% raise and the time is NOW. Furthermore, after years of budget cuts, our students deserve to attend fully funded public schools. It is great to see that the majority of educators in Arizona are in agreement that this cannot wait until November or the next legislative session.
Arizona's future starts in our schools. It is time to make this investment in our teachers and support staff so that they can be their best for our students.
