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

Teachers said they won't stay silent and sit on the sidelines any longer.

Several teachers made their way to the state Capitol on Monday morning, demanding more funding for education.

But in Englewood Schools, so many employees planned to be absent that day that the district canceled school for all but its preschool. Normally, priced at $120 per year and available on the spark for education website, now free of charge, "enables students to express themselves via graphics, Web stories and video to complete their school assignments and showcase digital creativity", says Adobe.

In 2016, Colorado's average teacher salary was $46,155.

Adobe's research has shown that jobs of the future will demand both creativity and creative problem solving skills, two different capabilities that 97% of educators recognize as being essential for students to learn in school.

"If we want to recruit and retain teachers, we have to offer a living wage and a viable retirement", Roman said.

"We are calling Monday, April 16th a day of action", Kerrie Dallman, president of the Colorado Education Association (CEA), told KDVR in Denver.

"She takes her time and pays close attention to the details of her work", said Superintendent Stephen Mauney, who read the nomination.

The state's largest teacher's union is also opposing proposed changes to the pension system for teachers and other public employees.

Colorado ranks 40th in spending per student, according to the AP.

"I'm going to tell them I'm here for them", Peardot said.

"We can't do that anymore", she said.

On Sunday, teachers in the Poudre School District were preparing for a busy Monday.

Lawmakers raised taxes to permanently increase educators' salaries by an average of $6,100 a year, increase classroom spending and give support staff a raise.

"We're willing to contribute more" to PERA, but some parts of the bill go too far, said Moraja, who is thankful for recent bond funding Englewood voters have passed but lamented that Colorado students are among the least funded in the country.
