Still RedForEd Rally (Update: Date changed to Wednesday!)

April 24 @ 4:30 pm

(Update: Date change to Wednesday, April 24th)

It’ll be one year exactly since our last Stand Out on Broadway, followed by the first day of the largest teacher walk out in Arizona’s history! As state budget talks begin, help us remind the legislature and our community why we are still #REDforED! We will be gathering downtown were we all meet for the first time, outside at the Arizona Supreme Court offices. Bring your signs. Bring your music. Bring YOUR voice!

REMINDER:
Arizona educators are committed and united behind
the following #RedforEd demands:

1. 20% salary increase for Arizona teachers in order to create competitive pay with neighboring states.
(Ducey promised 20 by 2020. Beside the fact he can not promise future budget plans… put that little fact aside. Did you know that if this actually happens we will still be roughly $300,000,000 short of a 2008 education budget!)

2. Competitive pay for all Education Support Professionals.
(Nope not done yet.)

3. Permanent certified salary structure which includes annual raises.
(Nope not done yet.)

4. Restore education funding to 2008 levels.
(Nope not done yet.)

5. No new tax cuts until per-pupil funding reaches the national average.
(Still working on it.)

Not a single bill was heard this past legislative session that pertained to equitable and sustainable funding for public education.

So… again, make your signs. Bring your music. Bring YOUR voice! Lets gather downtown on April 25th!
