EVERY school public school in West Virginia is SHUT DOWN due to a historic teachers strike. This is what solidarity looks like
Teachers and other school staff participated in a statewide walkout on Thursday to demand better salaries and health insurance. Educators in all of Virginia’s 55 counties are involved in the walkout, which will continue on Friday. It’s the first time teachers have staged a statewide strike in 30 years.
On Thursday, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten went to West Virginia to support the work stoppage. Educators gathered at the capitol grounds on Thursday.
