  • Teachers met inside the capitol to discuss a way forward for the strike

At least one Denver-area school district is closing Monday because so many of its teachers called in to take a personal day for the rally.

"This fight is not over just because the school bell will ring once more; we have created a movement and there is no stopping us", Priest said.

These movements were largely inspired by a nine-day statewide teacher walkout in West Virginia that began February 22, resulting in their winning the 5 percent pay increase they wanted. On March 30, so many teachers staged a "sickout" that 29 school districts were forced to cancel classes because they couldn't find enough substitute teachers.

The Arizona teachers are demanding a 20 percent pay hike from an average of $43,280 a year for elementary school teachers and annual pay of $46,470 for high school teachers. Instead, it involved children in discussions and watched movies with them.
