Strikes driving change in states with lowest-paid teachers
from Center for American Progress
Just one year after several high-profile teacher walkouts began across the United States, teachers in multiple cities and states are once again protesting and going on strike to demand better working conditions and fairer pay. States have not funded schools at the levels needed to support a high-quality education. Teachers are protesting this chronic disinvestment in education — and they are seeing results. Education funding was a top issue in the 2018 elections, with pro-education candidates winning gubernatorial elections in historically underfunded states such as Wisconsin, Kansas, and Michigan.
