Teacher Walk-ins

Across North Carolina, teachers held walk-in protests against state education cuts.

In the mountains, some parents gathered outside local schools to support those teachers. One group of parents marched in front of Vance Elementary School Monday morning. Parents held signs highlighting their concerns over recent cuts. Some parents say they are upset over things like teacher pay and reductions in teacher assistants.

Parent Craig Anderson says since some teachers fear for their jobs if they protest, he wanted to show his support.

"It is hugely important for everybody in the state," said Anderson. "The parents need to speak up for that, and the teachers need to feel that they can speak up for that."

A group of more than 100 teachers, students and parents gathered before school started at Brevard High school Monday morning. Along with the walk-ins across the state, many teachers wore red as a sign of unity.
