Thousands of teachers made their way to Raleigh today for another rally for education.

They all wore red to support public education and called for legislators to support their five priorities; Medicaid expansion, $15 minimum wage for support staff, restoration of extra pay for teacher’s with masters degrees, restoration of state retiree health benefits eliminated by the General Assembly in 2017 and to be provided enough school librarians, psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses and other health professionals to meet national professional-to-student standards.

The rally was organized by N.C. Association of Educators and Cabarrus County Schools and Kannapolis City Schools closed for the day because of the amount of teachers who requested personal days to attend.
