Report: Protesting Teachers Led To More Education Funding — Including In Arizona

Teachers in a handful of states, including Arizona, went on strike last year, demanding higher pay among other improvements.

A recent report found, by and large, those teachers that walked out of the classroom got more money.

The findings come from the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. To talk about the report, The Show reached out to one of its authors, Michael Leachman. He’s the senior director for state fiscal research for the organization.
