Thousands of Indiana students are having a school day called off as many of their teachers are making plans to attend a union-organized Statehouse rally that could signal an increase in educator activism regarding teacher pay and other issues that continue to be discussed within the Hoosier State.
Many school district officials are reporting that with so many teachers requesting personal time off for the November 19th rally, they have decided to shut their doors for that day simply because they will not be able to find enough substitute teachers to cover classrooms.
However, they also say they support the push by teachers for a bigger boost in school funding.
Leaders in the State of Indiana project that of the state’s two main teacher unions, over 5,000 or more teachers could attend the Statehouse lobbying effort on the day that members of the Republican-dominated Legislature are gathering for organizational meetings ahead of their 2020 session.
The 2020 session begins in early January.
