Back in the United States, the Arizona Education Association says teachers are on strike today for a third straight day to protest the $1 billion funding cuts to education in Arizona since the 2008 recession. Thousands of teachers in Colorado also rallied in Denver on Friday to demand better funding for education there. The protests come on the heels of teachers’ strikes in West Virginia, Kentucky and Oklahoma.
