Are You Wearing Red for Ed?

By Breyer Law Offices on April 4, 2018

Red for Ed is a grassroots movement started by parents and teachers to support public education in America, and they are asking supporters to wear red to support our schools. The Husband and Wife Team at Breyer Law, P.C., consistently recognizes great teachers within the community for our Teacher Appreciation award, just like we support #RedforEd.
Here’s what you need to know about the movement: teachers and parents regularly schedule events for #RedforEd that ask people within the community to wear red to call attention to the needs of our local public schools, including the need for basic items like healthy food, school supplies, and more. The events also raise money and collect donation items for schools, as well as support higher pay for teachers.

In Arizona, teachers want to call attention to low wages as well as a shortage of teachers in their schools. The state ranks last in teacher pay, with Arizona teachers being paid an average of 75 cents to each dollar that teachers make in other states.

The movement isn’t just restricted to teachers and parents; any member of the community is welcome and encouraged to join, simply by wearing red and supporting events on social media by using the hashtag #RedforEd, or coming in person to scheduled events. One recent event, the #RedforEd March 28, 2018 rally, met at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix to call attention to the shortfalls. Approximately 2,500 people attended, with thousands more showing support online. One item on the agenda was a 20% raise for teachers, calling attention to the many overtime hours teachers put in on a regular basis.

One way we support our teachers is by awarding a monthly gift card worth $250 for classroom supplies to a great teacher in the community. You can nominate your favorites at https://www.breyerlaw.com/lawyers-for-teachers.html, and if they don’t win this month, nominate them again next month! We enjoy supporting the teachers who work hard to educate our children, and this is one way we want to thank them for their hard work.
