Hundreds of Denver Teachers Join Teachers’ Protests Sweeping Nation

HeadlineApr 16, 2018
H12 teachers

In Denver, hundreds of teachers are expected to rally at the state Capitol today, as the wave of teachers’ protests continues to spread nationwide. Meanwhile, the Oklahoma Education Association says it’s ended its 9-day strike over funding for education. And teachers in Kentucky also swarmed the state Capitol on Friday to protest cuts to education. Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has been forced to apologize after he tried to attack the teachers’ protest by saying, “I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today, a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them.”
