Colorado teachers plan their own Capitol rally Monday

Teachers met inside the capitol to discuss a way forward for the strike

Every red-clad teacher we spoke to inside the Colorado State Capitol Monday said they would rather be in the classroom than protesting for better pay, school funding and protections for their pensions, but they felt what they were doing would ultimately benefit students in the long run.

On Sunday, teachers in the Poudre School District were preparing for a busy Monday. Starting last week, teachers started planning "walk ins" to their schools and proclaiming the idea of starting a strike.

Teachers say it's about more than a salary raise.

"I'm going to tell them I'm here for them", Peardot said. Normally, priced at $120 per year and available on the spark for education website, now free of charge, "enables students to express themselves via graphics, Web stories and video to complete their school assignments and showcase digital creativity", says Adobe.

"We need our schools fully funded", Young said.

They want the parents to know what the issues are.

In order to compensate for low wages, some schools districts, such as Pueblo City, voted to switch to a four day school week to appease current and entice new teachers.

And even though lawmakers tried to reverse some of those cuts by passing a almost $500 million tax to increase spending, it's not enough, said Robin Wiser, a high school science teacher from Berryhill. The Associated Press reports that Colorado underfunds its schools by $822 million per year, but that next year, lawmakers are trying to increase per-pupil spending by 6 percent in next year's budget plan. He likened being a teacher to "becoming a father". A day they hope will show signs of progress.

Colorado's average teacher salary - $46,155 - ranks 46th in the country.

Some teachers told CBS4 they are exhausted of having to take time away from the classroom to rally and fix the numerous issues within public education.

"Educators have been energized by what's happened in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kentucky and Arizona", she said, referring to teacher walkouts or demonstrations in those states.
