I wonder if this would be going on if Hillary had won the election? Somehow I think not.

This is all about National politics, this is being orchestrated and organized from the top down by the National Party. The kids are pawns.

Oh, put a sock in it. I know several people who are walking out and they are all Trump-nuts. Do you really think that 80% of teachers who voted to walk out are Hillary supporters in a state she lost? This is about a long, long simmering problem with Arizona education and it runs deep and crosses party lines.

He does have a point though. This is being pushed by a national movement AND why didn't it happen between 08-16?

This fuse was lit by the other state(s) teacher walkouts and their success. Timing is everything...

And across state lines evidently. I expect a "Red for Ed" wave to roll across the country...

But why not during the previous admin? If it has been going on for so long why not strike when a sympathetic POTUS is in the house?

So is social media. The people are restive. Social media movements are showing them how successful grass roots organizing can be. You see it start up in West Virginia of all places and it just spreads like wild fire through the wires.

Why did it take so long for a person like Rosa Parks to stand up? Before the wailing and gnashing of teeth starts, my point is sometimes it just takes all the right things to come into alignment for a spark to be ignited.
It's been lit by other states who'd finally had enough AND the economy is now out of recession, reportedly going great so there's that as well...
