Teachers Discuss the Impact of Red for Ed, Challenges That Remain

A teacher roundtable reflects nearly a century of educator experience.

With education playing a prominent role in the election, we revisited Red for Ed, which saw teachers all over the state walk out to demand increased education funding. The historic movement led Arizona lawmakers to approve more money for teacher pay raises. Arizona 360 assembled a panel of five educators from Southern Arizona to ask what challenges remain in the classroom. Combined, their experience totals nearly a century. They teach in major districts in the Tucson metro area, along with a charter school and the Tohono O'odham Nation.
